IPI/PT510—Nurturing Strong Youth

View outline (PDF)   Instructor(s): The Rev. Dr. Martin Brokenleg, OSBCn

For a century, the positive youth movement has been using the best psychological and educational practices to create strong youth, no matter the youth’s background or ethnicity. What many in this movement do not say is that it is deeply spiritual work that creates resilient youth and adults. This course will review positive youth practices and explore how the parish and congregation have important work in creating strong Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal youth, and so, a strong society. Students will read the resource bibliography, participate in course activities and research one aspect of youth resiliency to share with the class.
