Item description for A Parent's Guide to Helping Teenagers in Crisis by Rich Van Pelt & Jim Hancock...

Fights at school, sexual abuse, eating disorders, school crises ? the list goes on and on. Hardly a day passes without a local crisis at involving junior highers or high schoolers. This practical resource covers the whole continuum of private and public crisis, equipping parents to work with their kids to deal with any crisis in a way that helps the individual and helps the family stay intact.

Publishers Description
You ve seen it on the news too many times to count. School shootings, adolescent addictions, bullying, eating disorders, depression and suicide, cutting, pregnancy. There is no lack of bad news to be told about teenagers today. Maybe you believe that will never happen to my child. And maybe it won t. But crises aren t always the stories that make the evening news. The spectrum of crises an adolescent may face can range from something as (seemingly harmless) as getting caught cheating on a test to dealing with the breakdown of the family, to acting out and getting in trouble with the law. And the reality is that someone they know will likely experience some kind of crisis---and that can affect your teen significantly. Either way, when a crisis affects your teen, wouldn t you want to be prepared? Rich Van Pelt and Jim Hancock, both of whom have raised teenagers into adulthood and have spent decades in youth ministry and crisis management, bring together their expertise and insight to help you identify and understand what a crisis is and how you can help your teen live and grow through it. Inside, you ll find practical responses for issues like: * Suicidal thoughts or behavior * Accidents * Cheating * Death (of a friend or loved one) * Divorce * Eating disorders * Hazing * Pregnancy * Sexual abuse * Sexual identity confusion * Substance abuse or addiction * And more In addition to learning appropriate responses to crises, you ll learn how to prevent some of these issues, and how to get professionals involved when necessary. Whatever it is your teen is dealing with, your influence in their life is still the most important one. So be prepared to walk them through their crisis with wisdom, compassion, and the tools to help them heal."

Reviews - What do customers think about Parents Guide To Helping Teenagers In Crisis?

Cutting  Aug 18, 2009
This book was helpful when one of the girls in our church showed up to my house one night with cuts on her arm. Based on the info in this book, and personal experience, I assured the mother that her daughter's display of self injury was not typical of teens dealing with pain. Sure enough, the daughter was just frustrated and wanted attention. It was the first and last time it happened. I've purchased 10 of these to hand out to moms and dads at my annual parent meeting.
