This chapter details a therapeutic method developed in Germany to illustrate some of the contested theoretical and practical issues involved in violence reduction, especially the potential pitfalls of an overly person-centred approach. Through an analysis of some of the therapeutic and educational methods employed, the authors try to provide a stimulus for further debate as to what ‘constructive confrontation’ might look like within the context of youth work practice.

Keywords:   constructive confrontation, violence reduction, person centered, therapeutic methods, educational methods
