 Clash of the Mind and Heart – Parents’ Playbook for Helping Youths Succeed (softcover)
This book is NOT just for parents! This is for ANYONE working or wanting to work with youths. The understanding-divide between adolescents and adults seems to be getting wider. Concretely on a day-to-day basis, adolescents and parents are clashing with each other over mind and heart issues; and no one seemed to be able to “get” the other. Even if one “got it”, it would not take long before one would challenge the other about it. This book not only informs you about what you really need to understand about youths, but it also proposes the framework and strategies to guide the adults to help youths succeed. The book includes some stories of professional youth work, where effective youth engagement strategies are highlighted by youths themselves in retrospect.
