Positive Peer Culture is an indispensable asset to all those committed to helping young people reach their full .

Positive Peer Culture is an indispensable asset to all those committed to helping young people reach their full potential as individuals and members of their communities. Vorranth's and Brendtro's writing is the result of a fruitful dialectic of theory and praxis; Positive Peer Culture is a model for youth treatment and empowerment grounded in effective practice. I know of no other approach that so effectively challenges young people to assume the task of caring, helping, changing, and living responsibly (and I've experiences several approaches).

This revision of an important and path-breaking work holds to its central argument that troubled young people can develop self-worth, significance, dignity, and responsibility only through commitment to the positive values of helping and caring for others.

An enlarged and revised edition of the authors' pioneering work on building positive youth culture, Positive Peer Culture retains the practical orientation that made the original attractive to teachers and youth workers, while adding new material on positive peer culture (PPC) in schools and community settings, research on PPC, and guidelines for maintaining program effectiveness and quality. Concepts of positive peer culture have been applied in a wide variety of educational and treatment settings including public and alternative schools, group homes, and residential centers. Vorrath and Brendtro describe specific procedures for getting youth "hooked on helping" through peer counseling groups, and for generalizing caring behavior beyond the school or treatment environment through community-based service learning projects.

The authors contend that the young people who populate our nation's schools are in desperate need of an antidote to the narcissism, malaise and antisocial life-styles that have become so prevalent, and that this book seeks to provide a way of meeting their increasing cry to be used in some demanding cause. On publication of the first edition, Richard P. Barth, Frank A. Daniels Professor for Human Services Information Policy, School of Social Work, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill called Positive Peer Culture "a significant contribution to the field."

Reviews:
  • thrust
This book is interesting, but difficult read. My son is in a Positive Peer Culture based school and the school recommends all parents read this book. It was like being in grad school again. I wish the authors would produce a book or pamphlet for those who want to understand the concepts; but don't need the in-depth analysis given in these pages. I gave it five stars because it wasn't intended for the audience I am part of and is a right on target book for its intended audience. I hope they will consider doing a book for parents and not professionals.

I am reading this book at the recommendation of the Therapeutic Boarding school we have enrolled my 17 year old son in. They are using the PPC model and are successful with it, which I have learned is not easy because you have to have a well trained and supported staff. There are many good tips in understanding troubled adolescents but more importantly how to encourage responsibly and accountability. We need more of these positive peer environments in Residential treatment and correctional facilities!
  • Dikus
This is a book all parents should read and practice with their kids. I had to use it for a problem child and found it turned his life
and mine around,

Bought for work - appreciated the new revision. This approach useful with teens in residential and institutional care - and a modification of the tenets will be applied to large group problem solving court addict clients.

first time i opened it the front cover started to come off so i had to tape it on both sides to prevent it from coming off all the way.
This book is the foundation for Positive Peer Culture; a very powerful treatment approach that mobilizes the natural and dynamic potential of adolescent peer groups. Working with delinquent and emotially disturbed youth in residential treatment for over 25 years I have found this to be an outstanding process for staff and youth alike and have utilzed it as our primary treatment approach at the Connecticut Junior Republic.
