The current generation of adolescents are experiencing more stressful and/or negative experiences at an earlier age in their development than previous generations. The consequence is that more and more teenagers are becoming casualties of drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, and mental illness. In this book, George R. Holmes provides care-givers and parents with specific tactics to move teenagers successfully through adolescence.
The prevention of adolescent casualties is accomplished by the practice of three major prevention strategies. The first provides a clear understanding of the complex changes adolescents experience with what Holmes calls a map of the territory called adolescence. The second involves a set of interpersonal prescriptions or ways to communicate with teens that have proven usefulness. The third encourages a renaissance in schools serving teenagers by bringing technology and talent to the classroom in a new way. These strategies are designed to promote greater levels of social competency among teenagers. This, in turn, leads to fewer major emotional problems and a more successful move to adulthood. Holmes's volume is an important tool for counselors, mental health professionals, social workers, and others dealing with today's adolescents.
"Gilly Freeborn is possibly the most screamingly funny teenage character ever written." Will Davis, Guardian
At last this much-loved novel is back in print!
Tormented teenagers always make for a good read, but Claire Robertson has created in Gilly Freeborn, the heroine of the laugh-out-loud Letters of a Love Struck Teenager, one of the most hilariously tormented of them all. As Gilly writes to Alexa Deerheart, Agony Aunt of "The Bizz" magazine, her delightfully traumatic life is laid bare. The terror of having no breasts, the first tinglings (literally!) of love, and the trials and tribulations of relationships with family and friends make her life and absolute teenage hell. And as for spots--read it and weep!
Letters of a Love Struck Teenager is pure joy and Gilly Freeborn instantly translates as a female Adrian Mole, trapped in a body that is intent on defying her. Raw and passionate, decidedly naughty in places and crammed full of delightful bitchiness, this is a book to die for and certainly one that the grown-ups will enjoy too as they relive the pain of those hideously confusing teenage years. (Age 11 and up) --Susan Harrison
