Dear JOBS partners,

Below is a UVM lecture that should be interesting re: youth with EBD.


"Awakening the Sleeping Giant"
Steve Van Bockern, Professor of Education at Augustana College

Wednesday, October 8th, 2003     4:00-6:00pm

427A Waterman Building, UVM Campus


  Brief Biography:

  Dr. Van Bockern was a principal in Sleepy Eye Minnesota and taught in the
Sioux Falls Public Schools.  Currently, he is a Professor of Education at
Augustana College, Sioux Falls, SD where he also served as Department
Chair. Dr. Van Bockern is Vice President of Reclaiming Youth International,
a non-profit organization involved in youth/family advocacy, research and
training. He is a senior trainer of Life Space Crisis Intervention,
Hagerstown, MD. In 1990, along with Augustana colleagues Larry Brendtro and
Martin Brokenleg, Dr. Van Bockern collaborated on writing the book
Reclaiming Youth At Risk:  Our Hope for the Future. Desmond Tutu wrote the
forward for the second edition of the book.  The ideas from the book have
been shared in over 23 countries and extensively throughout the US and
Canada.

  Lecture Series Abstract:

  "Within every school there is a sleeping giant of teacher-leadership
which can be a strong catalyst for making change." Katzenmeyer & Moller,
1996

  Teachers nurtured to be leaders can be powerful agents of change.  But
for what end?  If our intention as leaders is to only increase math and
reading scores, we have missed a greater mark - kind, caring and powerful
youth who share their gifts to create a better world. Using the Circle of
Courage model, developed by colleagues Larry Brendtro and Martin Brokenleg,
Steve Van Bockern, co-author of Reclaiming Youth At Risk:  Our Hope for the
Future will explore how the four universal needs for positive growth -
belonging, mastery, independence and generosity - can inform and challenge
the work of those who influence the lives of young people.
