Required viewing for all people working with troubled children
These outstanding tapes should be required viewing for all people working with troubled children and youth. One reason is that Charlie Appelstein entertains as he teaches, inspiring the viewer to laugh, nod, and cry with recognition. Another is that we come away believing in the potential of all youngsters to lead happier lives. I only wish this magic was available when I began my career.
As a superintendent I worked with Charlie in a long-term project using his program to reshape the lives of children in my district who were out of options. His work made an impact so great in the lives of my students that it literally saved them.
Changed the way my employees think about their work
Charlie’s strategies are fantastic! We’re using them daily to improve the quality of what we do. His strength-based approach has changed the way my employees think about their work.
