With Bridging Worlds, you will learn to uncover the roots of teenage problems - the causes behind symptoms such as self-destructiveness, anger, recklessness, and violence. Originally published in 1998, this title shows you how to develop treatment guidelines and thoughtful frames of reference that address the problems of teenage violence, pregnancy, truancy, and delinquency. It will help you detect when the reckless, even frightening, behaviour of adolescents is a cry for help and show you what you can do to defuse the situation, make authentic and meaningful connections, and offer valuable help.
