Look beyond angry behaviour and find ways to reach defensive teens. When teens are clearly troubled this book can help. If feelings of rejection, anxiety and low self-esteem overwhelm, they may withdraw or vent their anger through anti-social behaviour.

This comprehensive resource contains vital theory and practice, tools and techniques as well as case studies from contributors with extensive hands-on experience of working with troubled young people. The extensive selection of illustrated worksheets and exercises have been developed in consultation with teenagers themselves, and will be a vital aid to helping young people deal with their feelings.

  • Full of practical ways to connect with young people

  • Includes key parenting skills
  • Experienced contributors offer tried-and-tested interventions

  • Use the worksheets to connect in a non-confrontational way
