Counseling Troubled Teens and Their Families: A Handbook for Clergy and Youth Workers by Andrew J. Weaver, John D. Preston, Leigh W. Jerome

Teenagers and their families live in a society with epidemic levels of social problems that put adolescents at risk for emotional problems.nbsp; Teens have special mental and emotional issues that need to be addressed by pastors and their colleagues in ministry.nbsp; For this reason, clergy and caregivers need to know about the most common mental disorders that occur in adolescents, including how to assess and diagnose the disorders, what types of treatment can be initiated in the faith community, when referral is required, and to whom to make a referral.This book identifies twenty-two of the most common mental health conditions that occur among adolescents, provides illustrative cases, lists national resources available to help, and suggests when and from whom to seek additional professional help.nbsp; There is an emphasis on self-help resources available on the Internet, a major source of information for teens.nbsp; The conditions addressed include: various types of addiction and abuse; family crises such as pregnancy, runaways, divorce, depression, and bereavement; and other disorders such as eating disorders, ADA, schizophrenia, and learning disabilities.Weaver and his colleagues have produced another winner for clergy: a casebooknbsp;that covers most of the difficult situations in which pastors are called upon to be a first, and, sometimes primary, support and helper. Each case presentation is followed by critical issues to be aware of, relevant information, including community and national resources. Most pastors will be grateful for this book a number of times each year. Sections in the first chapter on the childs personality development and on effective parenting will be appreciated by most parents. --David K. Switzer, Emeritus Professor of Pastoral Care, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
