As Muhammad Ali describes in his foreword, this is a book about finding greatness in even our most difficult youth. Traditional punitive interventions in schools and courts, as well as flaw-finding treatment, are failed approaches rooted in reactive pessimism. No Disposable Kids presents a fresh alternative of using problems as learning opportunities and creating powerful environments where all youth can thrive. The authors draw from positive youth development research and their collective 100 years of experience developing educational and treatment programs for troubled youth.
