Über diesen Titel


An important, honest, and life-changing book for parents of troubled teens--coauthored by an expert psychotherapist and a "parent-who's-been-there"

More than ever before, it seems, we're discussing teenagers and their problems. But for all the talk, there have been few books offering any answers ... until now. In Teens in Turmoil, Dr. Carol Maxym and Leslie York offer parents a process through which they can become catalysts of change for their troubled adolescent. In a very accessible style that includes quizzes and charts, and illuminating family stories and examples, the authors guide parents toward making an honest assessment of their teen, themselves, and their family. Parents are then shown how to apply their increased knowledge and insight to everyday life where they can begin to implement positive change. The final section offers an extensive guide to making decisions about therapy, professional programs, and local or residential placement, along with resources and recommended reading.

Teens in Turmoil is a timely book that will speak to everyone who has worried in silence over the fate of their adolescent, and will help parents restore their adolescent's future while reclaiming their own lives.


If you've got a teenager at home who is manipulating the family and refusing to live by your rules, consider the practical guidance of Teens in Turmoil. Aimed specifically at families experiencing severe distress, Teens provides insight and instruction through real-life examples. Most of the stories are full of anger and miscommunication--problems many parents are all too familiar with. Using tools like "instant replay" of unsuccessful conversations to elicit more positive exchanges, you'll learn how to achieve better results from incidents like poor grades, missing a curfew, or lying. Diagnosis for teen problems can be a little tricky--is what you're experiencing "normal," or have things gotten out of control? To this end, the guide offers helpful questions to ask yourself as well as warning signs: Is your teen being physically threatening or sexually promiscuous? Any abrupt changes in personal style or behavior? Certainly, teens test limits, experiment with style, and cop attitudes; that is as it should be during these years of mental and physical upheaval. But parents have every right to have standards and expectations that their children can be required to meet--even when the child in question is "nearly an adult." --Jill Lightner
