Reviews - What do customers think about Adolescents in Crisis: A Guidebook for Parents, Teachers, Ministers, and Counselors?
"Adolescents in Crisis" is a valuable resource Nov 21, 2001
The Sept. 11 attack on the United States apparently has caused other national tragedies to pale in comparison. Some of these tragedies, including the Columbine massacre, involved school violence.
In this book, Wade Rowatt focuses on the underlying reasons for school violence. Plus, he focuses on many other areas that are causing crises for today's youth.
This is a very detailed book that will require careful reading. It is full of insights that are both frightening and enlightening. If you are a parent, someone who works with youth, or even cares about youth, this book belongs in your library.
A Must Read for Anyone Who is Concerned About Young People! Jun 19, 2001
As the editor who worked with Wade on this book, I will admit that I have a certain level of bias associated with this book, but, in spite of that, I can honestly say that Wade has written a book that will inspire, encourage, and enlighten any parent, minister, teacher, etc. who has ever had to struggle with raising a young person in this world of ours that is filled with all sorts of vices to tempt our young people. Almost every issue that our children are dealing with today is discussed in this book in a way that is accessible and helpful. Once again, Wade Rowatt has written a book that will serve to help all of us who are struggling to deal with adolescents in crisis.
