Life is hard for teens, but it can become even more difficult when they experience serious challenges. Removing the adversity from a teen's life may be out of our control, but we can help them deal with these experiences and build on their natural talents, goodness, and strength. This book highlights 20 tough experiences, and using research evidence and practical experience, the authors provide information and strategies that you can use to help guide a teen through troubled times. In addition to practical advice, suggestions, and tips for working with teens, each chapter also includes reproducible handouts, informational resources, and contact information for relevant organizations.
