Product Description

Teenagers now face a different world than they would have twenty, even ten years ago. Confronted with new choices and challenges, they grow up exposed to influences both positive and negative. Issues that can arise in high school---fights, sexual abuse, eating disorders---can be overwhelming, and, when teens look for advice, volunteers need to know how to help.

In A Volunteer's Guide to Helping Teenagers in Crisis, Van Pelt and Hancock recommend and detail a program for dealing with crises in a way that will be most helpful for struggling teens. They've divided their approach into four stages:
  • Understanding various crises and their potential consequences
  • Spotting crises by learning to recognize signs and get the whole story
  • Responding to crises by initiating contact, managing confidentiality, and taking follow-up steps to ensure teens receive professional help as necessary
  • Preventing crises by creating a safe environment and sharing information with teens
Thus, The Volunteer's Guide to Helping Teenagers in Crisis is designed to help volunteer you workers recognize and respond to crisis without adding more drama of their own. From fighting to sexual abuse to eating disorders-when teenagers experience tragedies or emergencies, the guidance your volunteers receive in this four-session training will help them know how to understand and respond.As confusing as life can be for teenagers, it can be just as difficult for volunteers to understand and help them through life's darker times. Van Pelt and Hancock have compiled a helpful, comprehensive guide invaluable to anyone working closely with teens.
