Summary

Summary

At Boys Town, success is the face of a child whose laughter has replaced tears and whose smile reveals hope for the future. In this book, you'll read how Boys Town created a legacy of caring for children and families in crisis through a philosophy that bridges cutting-edge child-care technologies with compassion and love.

Described in these pages by Executive Director Val J. Peter are the four facets of Boys Town's 21st Century Teaching Model -- training, clinical consultation, evaluation, and administration. Grounded in research and ever-evolving based on what we've learned from our clinical work with children and families, the Model is based on the principles of teaching skills, building healthy relationships, and empowerment through self-government. Discover how these principles, instilled by highly trained professional Family-Teachers, offer each of our children hope, healing, and "the best opportunity to be a successful person".

Built on the lessons of the past, the Boys Town Teaching Model keeps its sights set firmly on the future, its aim to revolutionize the way America cares for its troubled girls and boys.
