Description

Please join us at Lakehead University's Agora for a free community event hosted by the Office of Aboriginal Initiatives, Teaching Commons, Department of Psychology, School of Social Work, and the Chair on Truth and Reconciliation, to hear Indigenous scholar, Dr. Martin Brokenleg speak about Reclaiming Youth at Risk.

Dr. Brokenleg is a nationally and internationally renowned Lakota Sioux family-care expert and co-author of “Reclaiming Youth at Risk: Our Hope for the Future” and co-developer of the Circle of Courage model.

Reclaiming Youth at Risk
For thousands of years, American Indian cultures nourished respectful and courageous children without employing punitive discipline. Now, recent youth development research is revealing the essential elements in raising confident, caring children. Drawing on his research with Drs. Larry Brendtro and Steve Van Bockern in their book, Reclaiming Youth at Risk, Dr. Martin Brokenleg presents information on the Circle of Courage which offers concrete strategies for creating environments in which all young people can grow and flourish.

Dr. Martin Brokenleg is a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in South Dakota. He has a doctorate in Psychology.
