Clinicians, educators, mentors, and youth professionals are presented with research-based strategies that will help improve their relationships with youth, including those who have been ignored, discarded, and branded as incorrigible. While opening the door to a positive, strength-based approach to helping youth, the book reinforces a vital principle that tribal communities have embraced for centuries - every child is precious, and even those who are lost and marginalized can and should be reclaimed by society. The authors elaborate on the four guiding principles of the Circle of Courage model of positive youth development: Belonging, Mastery, Independence, and Generosity.
