Description

In Reclaiming Youth at Risk: Futures of Promise, Larry K. Brendtro, Martin Brokenleg and Steve Van Bockern offer a model of resilience and positive youth development to help educators and youth workers connect with and reclaim traumatised youth. This third edition restructures its approach to the reclaiming model by providing K–12 teachers and other youth practitioners with a more comprehensive understanding of how to integrate Native American knowledge and modern behavioural research so they can build relationships, foster prosocial behaviours and inspire every young person to overcome and thrive.

  • Study the four hazards that can dominate the lives of youth at risk

  • Explore a new and unique strength-based approach for reclaiming discouraged or alienated youth

  • Use modern research to learn how to create a safe, brain-friendly learning environment and break the conflict cycle
