Mobilizing Communities: Some populations display complex social patterns that are the result of history.  Aboriginal youth display inter-generational trauma but usually receive symptom treatment.  The Circle of Courage transforms the foundation conditions for Native or any other youth. Returning to traditional Aboriginal ways of raising youth will restore youth to the heart and mindset that supported survival of Indigenous peoples through many centuries.
