This is the definitive work on the basics of youth counselling. McDOwell offers solid advice on how to counsel teens through nearly any problem. Frank discussion of suicide, abuse, eating disorders, family life and sexuality help the untrained counselor aid teens. The writing is easy to follow and McDowell makes a point to never get "preachy" or take the Counselor toofar down a path. He offers referal information and soundly tells the counselor at what point to find help in the counselling session. Whether you are a Senior Pastor, Youth Pastor or a volunteer youth leader this book will help you better understand the minds and struggles of young people today while helping you know the best way to help them through.
READ THIS OR YOU ARE MISSSING OUT Nov 2, 2000
ANYONE NOT UNDERSTANDING TEENS WILL GET A GRASP ON A TEENS LIFE BY READING THIS YOU WILL LEARN THAT WHAT YOU SEE A TEEN DOING IS NOT WHAT THE TEEN MIGHT BE THINKING,IN OTHER WORDS YOU WILL LEARN TEEN SPEAK WITH THEIR ACTIONS NOT THEIR WORDS AND NEGATIVE BEHAVIOR MAY BE A WAY A TEEN IS CALLING OUT OR THAT FOR THE TEEN THIS IS THEIR SECURITY SO THEY DON'T FEEL THE PAIN OR GET LOOKED DOWN UPON BY OTHERS INCLUDING ADULTS BECAUSE THEY ARE STRUGGLING. FOR MANY TEENS BELIEVE THAT IT IS BETTER TO HAVE PEOPLE LOOK DOWN ON THEM BECAUSE OF BEHAVIOR RATHER THAN TO KNOW THAT THE TEEN IS HURTING.
