Reclaiming Youth at Risk
Reclaiming Youth at Risk training is grounded in the Circle of Courage principles first articulated in the 1990 edition of Reclaiming Youth at Risk. This book launched a global movement which sparked scores of other publications building on this reclaiming tradition. The authors drew on wisdom of Native American and First Nations peoples who reared children in cultures of respect by embracing values of Belonging, Mastery, Independence, and Generosity. These principles have been validated by modern research on resilience, neuroscience, and positive youth development. Reclaiming Youth at Risk is transforming schools, residential treatment, juvenile justice, and youth work.
This training provides core concepts and practical strategies for reclaiming our most vulnerable youth. Two-day certification for all who are concerned with raising resilient children.
