Online Course: Applying the Science of Hope for Criminal Justice, Juvenile Justice and Social Services Professionals


Hope demands to be understood, no different from other disciplines. This course not only provides a scholarly analysis, but also adds to the general discussion about hope, and how it can translate into a strategy for every human service agency, department, organization, or system including Criminal Justice, Juvenile Justice, behavioral health, child welfare, youth development and Social Services – or anyone who works with youth and children.

In this course, Rick Miller, Professor of Practice and Clinical Director at Arizona State University’s Center for the Advanced Study and Practice of Hope and founder Kids at Hope inspires, empowers, and transforms our understanding about how hope can support the physical, emotional, and intellectual success of all children and the adults who serve them.

This course is accompanied by the Rick Miller highly acclaimed book, The Soul, Science and Culture of Hope, along with a 53-page course workbook, and various worksheets/supplements.
