A Professional Development Learning Module

Description: circleofcourage-plain


Here is where you can obtain the materials necessary

to help your facility provide a supportive & effective setting

that creates lasting positive change in errant youth!


The Circle of Courage is an evidence-based psycho-educational model for reaching and teaching youth with mental health and behavioral disorders.  A proven approach that integrates research on positive youth development with the best of positive thought, wisdom and practice of both Western and first-peoples/indigenous cultures, this unique model aligns nicely with the philosophies and writings of other cultural groups. It's a comprehensive behavior change model for all youngsters.


The medicine wheel that symbolizes the model reflects the intertwining of the parts of human character that are essential for healthy emotional development: Being prosocially connected to important others (Attachment/Belonging), taking pride in one's competent/strong areas, with a willingness to undertake the learning of new skills and knowledge bases (Achievement/Mastery), possessing the ability to self-manage one's actions and make good choices (Autonomy/Independence), and possessing a helpful inclination (Altruism/Generosity).  These four dimensions of the Circle of Courage are inextricably intertwined, each one responding to and affecting the others and the whole.


WOW! Just look at the materials that are included in this learning module!

Until now, becoming knowledgable and skilled in The Circle of Courage model required expensive multiple trainings of multiple days. The recommended procedures and practices were also vague and ill-defined. No more!

This training package includes a broad and impressive array of easy-to-use training materials, assessment devises, and intervention strategies, along with a pre-designed packet of forms that can be used by programs that have adopted this supportive model for serving youngsters with emotional and behavioral challenges. These materials provide the "how-to-do-it" at an affordable price.

Now, your facility can plan and implement a positive discipline model that meets the intent, structure and criteria of the PBIS model... All at a small fraction of the time and money that was formerly required.

All of the training materials are in electronicly malable form, allowing you to make changes to better match the needs of your audience. The assessment and intervention documents can also be modified as you create your unique variation on positive approaches to reaching and teaching kids with behavioral challenges.
