Product Description

A growing number of adolescents today are hurting deeply - often more deeply than they or the adults in their lives are willing to acknowledge. Volunteers often report feeling inadequate and unprepared to process the complex circumstances kids are involved in today. Sadly, some may even adopt a more relationally distant stance in their interactions simply to avoid the possibility of "getting in over their heads." While the mishandling of a serious problem in the life of a teenager can have devastating results, youth workers cannot shy away from addressing a hurting teen's needs. You don't need a degree in clinical psychology to play a significant role in the life a hurting teenager. Help! My Kids Are Hurting: A Survival Guide To Working With Students In Pain offers a wide range of appropriate interventions and introduces reader to the fundamental helping skills they will need to succeed in their ministry. This is also a vital resource because it helps untrained youth workers recognize their limitations and learn the principles of effective referral.
