There are so many problems a youth will have to face on the road to adulthood. At times, it can be confusing and seemingly impossible and sometimes, they need help with understanding what they’re going through. Some teenagers, however, act out in ways that they probably shouldn’t, giving counsellors and anyone else who works with teenagers a hard time and the opinion that they’re “bad”

It can be hard to understand teenagers and what they’re going through but it doesn’t have to be hard anymore. A must read book, Strengths–Based Counselling with At-Risk Youth gives insight and tools in dealing with youth to prevent tragedy before it happens. Conversations with youth about many youth issues ranging from bullying to drug use, delinquency and much more allows readers to better understand how youth think and process different situations.

Reading this book will open your eyes and your heart to understanding youth today. You likely won’t look at them the same way again and will hopefully give you the information needed to effectively work with them.
