Description : Adolescents present a unique challenge for counselors across mental health professions as they constitute a unique group with a unique set of issues that is unlike children or adults. Adolescence is a time of increased resistance to authority, identity development, biological and cognitive development and vulnerability. Counselors across the country are encountering a significant increase in the number of adolescents who are involved in gangs, alienated from school, described as emotionally unstable and disproportionately rageful, and reside in neighborhoods where drugs and violence have become a normative feature in everyday life. While there is increasing research in the area of adolescence, there is a scarcity of materials on effective techniques in counseling adolescents. Counseling Adolescents Competently is a core text (or key supplement) which is written within the context of providing effective treatment according to CACREP. The authors will review extensive interventions ranging from assessment to diagnosis and fresh perspectives on intervention strategies for working with this often challenging group. The book will employ clinical case scenarios and profiles which will amplify key challenges and issues. It will focus on helping the counselor in training understand the relevant theory and research around adolescents and to engage in culturally relevant interventions and treatment planning. The book will focus on a number of themes that are commonly faced by teens, including trauma, grief, loss, emotional issues, sexual development, and peers. The book will first begin by providing a foundation for understanding the biological, social, cultural and risk and protetive factors of adolescents today. It then will move into the various treatment perspectives such as cognitive behavioral treatment approaches, client centered, gender, ecological and systemic, which have all been proven effective in working with adolescents. The third part covers diagnosis and assessment and treatment planning.

Description : Youth ministry succeeds because it directly reflects Jesus Christ’s approach. It’s not overvalued today; it’s undervalued. The hard work required for its success has been misunderstood and misrepresented. The first part of the book establishes that case and analyzes the pros and cons of current, varying philosophies and approaches, merging their best aspects into the holistic approach demonstrated by Christ. Part 2 introduces Attachment Relationship Ministry (ARM), a lens distinguishing four primary adolescent relational styles depending on how secure or insecure teens are with God and parents. Part 3 encourages strategic relational ministry sensitive to those styles, explaining why youth leader efforts succeed or fail. Chapters offer realistic discipleship and evangelism suggestions depending on attachment styles and practically empowering youth workers (volunteers, newbies, experts, and interns) to focus energy and time more wisely. These recommendations relate to spiritual formation, leadership selection, parental approach, and trending issues, such as ministry to LGBTQIA teens. For too many teens today, feeling insecure in crisis is a way of life. Learn how to take what you’ve done well and make it better. All church leaders should read this book, logging the critical importance of providing ministry specifically targeting teenagers today.

Description : Delivering health care services to adolescents can be challenging for primary care providers and for specialists. This volume of Adolescent Medicine Clinics devoted to psychiatric issues in adolescent medicine focuses on conditions and presentations that require a biopsychosocial approach because they represent the intersection of biology and behavior, with an emphasis on practical, clinical issues and evidence-based approaches. Conditions traditionally considered "psychiatric" with somatic manifestations, as well as those classified as "medical" with psychiatric symptoms are discussed. In addition, both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic modalities are detailed, as are treatment settings appropriate for treatment, and issues related to consent and confidentiality. Cutting-edge issues related to the Internet and adolescent health concerns are also addressed.
