Item description for Help My Kids Are Hurting: A Survival Guide to Working with Students in Pain by Marv Penner...

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.? This book will help youth volunteers see how and when they can help and when they need to call in the professionals.

First Aid Kit For Teen Ministry  Jan 12, 2006
Every year I head out to summer camps to counsel students from first to twelfth grade. And every year I find myself facing new situations and difficulties. This year, I wanted to do some research and learn a few things before plunging in again, and when I saw HELP! MY KIDS ARE HURTING, I knew that this would be a perfect fit.

While short on anecdotes and illustrations, Marv Penner leads the reader through a ton of practical advice that can immediately be used. Opening out with a look at the state of things in the world of teens today, Marv immediately draws the reader in to hear about what we as youth workers need to be doing to help. Further on, we can identify our own ministry style, learn boundaries for youth work, and find out what things hurting kids need from us.

With about 35 years of experience, Penner offers suggestions for talking with students, and then goes through the ten most common issues for teens, including: eating disorders, adolescent suicide, rape and sexual assault, adolescent pregnancy, substance abuse, grief and loss, self-injury, family breakdown, pornography and sexual addiction, and adolescent depression. He goes through each topic offering suggestions and raising awareness on each issue. He also includes some further resources in the form of books, websites, and telephone hotlines.

Overall, HELP! MY KIDS ARE HURTING is an excellent "first aid kit" for teen ministry. The book greatly enlighten me on many issues, and gave me a lot of direction in my camp counseling. Definitely pick this one up.
