A Dialogue on Reclaiming Troubled Youth
Aichhorn, August; Redl, Fritz
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v20 n4 p18-22 Win 2012
This discussion is drawn from the writings of two eminent founders of strength-based approaches to troubled children and adolescents. August Aichhorn is best known for his classic book, "Wayward Youth," and Fritz Redl as co-author of "Children Who Hate". August Aichhorn and Anna Freud mentored a young educational psychologist, Fritz Redl [1902-1988]. As Hitler came to power, Redl immigrated to Michigan in the U.S. For nearly a half century, Redl was the preeminent expert on the aggressive child. Fritz Redl and David Wineman wrote the classic books "Children Who Hate" (1951) and "Controls from Within" (1952). They also worked with William C. Morse to develop the University of Michigan Fresh Air Camp, where across four decades from 1941 thousands of professionals were trained in reclaiming children and youth. This article presents a hypothetical dialogue that includes original citations from writings by Aichhorn and Redl. (Contains 24 endnotes.)
