Making Sense of Adolescence
the dynamics of adolescence can provide the keys for knowing how to
deal with the problems that may arise. Our highly complex society requires a
lengthy adolescence and yet provides very few cues for parents and
teachers on how to deal with it. The task of turning children into
adults has never been more daunting. Dr. Neufeld will clarify the role
of parents and provide practical suggestions for how to successfully
negotiate this tumultuous time.
Dr. Neufeld's unique distillation of adolescent psychology and the
integration of this material with his rich experience with teens both
professionally and as a father, forms the basis for these insights and
for the suggestions he provides. An adolescent is neither child
nor adult and therein lies the difficulties, the turbulence, the
confusion and the challenge
