Maddern, Eric
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Leadership, v7 n1 p29-32 Spr 1990
Fifteen-year olds have the highest crime rate of any age group in Great Britain. A formal initiation of adolescents into adulthood, such as that of Australian Aboriginal society, may be what is lacking in contemporary society. Examines functions of the Aboriginal initiation as a basis for modern initiations that include challenge, responsibility, environmental awareness, and community participation. (KS)
