Toward a Developmental Paradigm
Oh Neill, Sam
Canadian Journal of Action Research, v15 n3 p37-47 2014
I have worked with students at-risk for the greater majority of my career. The term has a number of meanings. Officially, it means they are at-risk of failing, but often the risks are much greater. At one extreme they are at-risk of losing their lives to substance abuse or suicide. Less drastically they are at-risk of making their way through the criminal justice system, being institutionalized or living desperate lives. One thing they had in common was a difficulty in having healthy social interactions especially in moments of conflict. The problem was to address these developmental needs while fulfilling mandated curriculum requirements.
