This revision of an important and path-breaking work holds to its central argument that troubled young people can develop self-worth, significance, dignity, and responsibility only through commitment to the positive values of helping and caring for others. An enlarged and revised edition of the authors' pioneering work on building positive youth culture, Positive Peer Culture retains the practical orientation that made the original attractive to teachers and youth workers, while adding new material on positive peer culture (PPC) in schools and community settings, research on PPC, and guidelines for maintaining program effectiveness and quality. Concepts of positive peer culture have been applied in a wide variety of educational and treatment settings including public and alternative schools, group homes, and residential centers. Vorrath and Brendtro describe specific procedures for getting youth "hooked on helping" through peer counseling groups, and for generalizing caring behavior beyond the school or treatment environment through community-based service learning projects. The authors contend that the young people who populate our nation's schools are in desperate need of an antidote to the narcissism, malaise and antisocial life-styles that have become so prevalent, and that this book seeks to provide a way of meeting their increasing cry to be used in some demanding cause. On publication of the first edition, Richard P. Barth, Frank A. Daniels Professor for Human Services Information Policy, School of Social Work, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill called Positive Peer Culture "a significant contribution to the field."

Using the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Waves I and II) this study examines the utility of three problem labels (low self-image, inconsiderate of others, and inconsiderate of self) put forth in Harry Vorrath and Larry Brendtro's (1985) book, Positive Peer Culture (PPC). PPC is a holistic approach that has been used effectively as a treatment tool for varying degrees of delinquent behavior in a non-stigmatizing and non-labeling manner that helps build self-worth and reduce delinquent values and attitudes. The confirmatory factor analysis findings show that the PPC problem labels can be transformed into scaled variables those outlined in the literature. Findings based on ordinary least squares regression models suggest that the PPC problem labels are not significant predictors of general delinquency (i.e., status offense, property and person crimes, drug and alcohol) when accounting for other variables based on contemporary criminological theories (i.e., social learning, social control/bonding, social disorganization, and general strain).

This project evaluated the effects of Juniper Hills High School's program management system on the student's academic performance and on student's ability to problem solve with Positive Peer Culture and scientific method. Between January 2014 and October 2014, seven groups surveyed their peers on two areas of importance: their academic success and their successes in program. During Term 3 in the school year 2014-2015, eleven students participated in scientific journaling focusing on their ability to problem solve different science issues. This project generated evidence that students have an increased understanding of the scientific method when used with Positive Peer Culture and that Positive Peer Culture plays a major factor when students are achieving or failing in the academic classroom.

Social service agencies are facing the same expectations in quality management and outcomes as private companies, compelling staff members and researchers to provide and interpret valid and useful research to stakeholders at all levels in the field. Child welfare agencies are particularly scrutinized. In this textbook, two highly experienced researchers offer the best techniques for conducting sound research in the field. Covering not only the methodological challenges but also the real-life constraints of research in child welfare settings, Amy J. L. Baker and Benjamin J. Charvat present a volume that can be used both for general research methods and as a practical guide for conducting research in the field of child welfare. Baker and Charvat devote an entire chapter to ethical issues involved in researching children and their families and the limits of confidentiality within this population. They weave a discussion of ethics throughout the book, and each chapter begins with a scenario that presents a question or problem to work through, enabling readers to fully grasp the methods in the context of a specific setting or area of concern. Special sections concentrate on the value of continuous quality-improvement activities, which enable the collection and analysis of data outside of the strictures of publishable research, and the implementation of program evaluations, which can be helpful in obtaining further research and programmatic funding.
