Nearly 400 participants attended our Fourth Annual International Summit on Non-Adversarial, Non-Punitive Interventions for At-Risk Kids in Portland, Maine on November 7, 2014, which featured keynote speaker Dr. James Garbarino, author of Lost Boys: Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them and the forthcoming I Listen to Killers: Lessons Learned from 20 Years as a Psychological Expert Witness in Murder Cases. The day also featured dynamic presentations on a wide variety of non-punitive, non-adversarial interventions, as well as very poignant thoughts from inmates at the Maine State Prison.
If you couldn't be there, here are videos showing condensed versions of the two keynote addresses:
The 2014 Summit was supported, in part, by funding from the Truancy, Dropout and Alternative Education Advisory Council of the State of Maine Department of Education.
