HELP! is Available for Parents of Teens

As a Christian Counselor "Helping Your Struggling Teenager" is part of my list of resources that I highly recommend for parents, youth pastors and others who work with teens. This parenting handbook on thirty-six common problems faced by our youth is outlined to include the following categories for each topic: What the struggle looks like, why the struggle happens, how parents can help, how professionals can help, where to go for additonal help, case studies, inventories and checklist. This easy to use reference lists issues from A to V (including anger, homosexuality, obesity, schizophrenia, suicide, violence and much more). This text is also culturally relevant for Counseling in African American Communities.

A Textbook that I will keep

This is the first book that I have gotten for a class that seriously made me say "Sweet!" I will keep this book and use it as a become a Youth Minister

One fo the Best!

Helping the Struggling Adolescent is one of the best resource books on my shelf. While I am sure not everyone will agree with Dr. Parrott's conclusions or methods, this is one of the best books on helping teens through some of the most difficult issues in life. If you are looking for a book that you can pull off your shelf in a crisis to help you get some footing with what to do next, this is the book for you!

Easy quick guide to assiting todays youth

This is an excellent resource for therapist! It's like cliff-notes for today's youths. Divided up in easy to use sections highlighting 36 common youth issues. Each section outlines what this particular struggle looks like, why it may be occuring, helpful hints on how to treat along with information for parents and case studies. The updated topics impressed me as cutting edge (Internet and Computer Game Addiction, Cohabitation, etc.) as well as the traditional issues (Eating Disorders, Grief, etc.)If all this wasn't enough... wait there's more! Included are 43 rapid assessment test for several different areas. When psychological text are over $80 to purchase $29 is a steal.
