Hearts and Hands: A New Paradigm for Work with Youth and Violence.
Rodriguez, Luis J.
Social Justice, v24 n4 p7-20 1997
Instead of working solely to control young people and to put offenders behind bars, society should be trying to build a responsible community in which young people, aware of their value, act responsibly because they have seen responsible behavior in action. The importance of ritual and initiation for youth is discussed. (SLD)
