Overview
Counseling Troubled Teens and Their Families by Andrew J Weaver, John Preston, and Leigh W Jerome. Subtitled: A Handbook for Clergy and Youth Workers. Uses case studies to explain the convergence of psychoanalytic theory and practice with the realities of the pastoral counseling situation

Publishers Description

Teenagers and their families live in a society with epidemic levels of social problems that put adolescents at risk for emotional problems. Teens have special mental and emotional issues that need to be addressed by pastors and their colleagues in ministry. For this reason, clergy and caregivers need to know about the most common mental disorders that occur in adolescents, including how to assess and diagnose the disorders, what types of treatment can be initiated in the faith community, when referral is required, and to whom to make a referral.

This book identifies twenty-two of the most common mental health conditions that occur among adolescents, provides illustrative cases, lists national resources available to help, and suggests when and from whom to seek additional professional help. There is an emphasis on self-help resources available on the Internet, a major source of information for teens. The conditions addressed include: various types of addiction and abuse; family crises such as pregnancy, runaways, divorce, depression, and bereavement; and other disorders such as eating disorders, ADA, schizophrenia, and learning disabilities.

"Weaver and his colleagues have produced another winner for clergy: a casebook that covers most of the difficult situations in which pastors are called upon to be a first, and, sometimes primary, support and helper. Each case presentation is followed by critical issues to be aware of, relevant information, including community and national resources. Most pastors will be grateful for this book a number of times each year. Sections in the first chapter on the child's personality development and on effective parenting will be appreciated by most parents." --David K. Switzer, Emeritus Professor of Pastoral Care, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University

Reviews - What do customers think about Counseling Troubled Teens and Their Families: A Handbook for Clergy and Youth Workers?

Very useful and practical, delightful reading  Mar 13, 2001
This is a superb book that will be of enormous use to those who must counsel families of troubled teens. These teens are a group of individuals who need acceptance,love, inspiration, and guidance. This book gives the counselor practical tools that are time tested to help families gently and wisely direct their teens onto a path of hope and success. The reading is fast and easy, filled with practical case studies that hold the reader's attention. It will also be useful for families of troubled youth to read, particularly if they are not already in counseling. I recommend this book without reservation.
