We are interested in curing mental illness, in serving children’s needs, and in undoing the crippling effects of the past. But we are equally—perhaps more—interested in challenging children with the adventure of life, in promoting improved capacity to deal with the struggles of human existence, and in anticipating the opportunities of the future.
Walker to Host Circle of Courage
In October, Walker will host the 2011 New England Seminars for the Circle of Courage, a model of youth empowerment that integrates the best of Western educational thought with the wisdom of indigenous cultures and emerging research on positive youth development.
A Program of the Starr Institute for Training, the Circle of Courage has teamed up with Walker and Reclaiming Youth International to provide this world class training seminar for special education and therapuetic child care professionals. Circle of Courage trainings scheduled at Walker include:
- Response Ability Pathways [RAP] October 3-4
- Deep Brain Learning [DBL] October 5
- Developmental Audit [DA] October 6-7
Trainings based on the Circle of Courage philosophy build skills to transform young lives and create positive environments where young people flourish.
Register for the October 2011 New England Seminars at Walker School in Needham, Massachusetts, or visit Reclaiming Youth International for more information.
