The article offers information on the Developmental Audit that is grounded in the resilience model of the Circle of Courage in the U.S. Accordingly, the Developmental Audit model provides an alternative to the traditional assessments in determining disorders that focus on pathology. Moreover, it encourages the young adult at risk to help identify strengths that can provide solutions to the existing problems. It notes that the Developmental Audit was initiated by psychologists Nicholas Long and Larry Brendtro.
