The primary four self-destructive behaviors in adolescence today are excessive alcohol and substance abuse, promiscuity, self mutilation (ie: cutting and burning), and eating disorders. These will be covered in detail, along with other issues like Internet addiction and suicide. These problems are not only detrimental to teens' mental and physical health, but the legal consequences for injurious behavior have also changed. Identification and prevention are the most important aspects in stopping teenage self-destructive behavior. This book offers a comprehensive look at teens self destructive behavior and gives parents solutions for dealing with it. Helping Your Troubled Teen instructs parents on how to identify an at-risk adolescent and discuss warning signs of injurious behavior, before the problem(s) become severe enough that a child is in crisis and/or legal actions are taken against them. Personal anecdotes and testimonials from both parents and their teenagers who have been confronted with and have engaged in self-destructive behavior are also included.

Dieses Buch macht Sie stark! Und das sofort! Depression und Burnout sind für Amy Morin keine Fremdworte: Auf den Tag genau drei Jahre, nachdem sie ihre Mutter verloren hatte, starb ihr Mann ganz plötzlich an einem Herzinfarkt. Morin wurde mit nur 26 Jahren Witwe und musste selbst lernen, nach diesen schweren Schicksalsschlägen zu mentaler Stärke zu finden. Sie nutzte den Umbruch zum Neuanfang. Die Psychotherapeutin und Sozialpädagogin Amy Morin weiß: Wir alle sind nur so gut, wie unsere schlechtesten Angewohnheiten es zulassen. Sie sind wie eine schwere Last, sie behindern, ermüden und frustrieren. Sie halten uns davon ab, unser Potential voll auszunutzen, sie führen zu Depression und Burnout. Unsere mentale Stärke und Resilienz steigern wir, indem wir negative Verhaltens- und Denkmuster ablegen, wie z.B. in Selbstmitleid zu versinken, sofortige Erfolge zu erwarten oder das Alleinsein zu fürchten. Freuen wir uns stattdessen auf Veränderungen, besiegen wir unsere Ängste, werden wir glücklich und erfolgreich! Der erste Ratgeber mit einem ganz neuen Ansatz zur Verbesserung der mentalen Stärke und der Resilienz: mitreißend, effektiv und überzeugend!

Player. Jock. Slacker. Competitor. Superhero. Goofball. Boys are besieged by images in the media that encourage slacking over studying; competition over teamwork; power over empower - ment; and being cool over being yourself. From cartoons to video games, boys are bombarded with stereotypes about what it means to be a boy, including messages about violence, risktaking, and perfecting an image of just not caring. Straight from the mouths of over 600 boys surveyed from across the U.S., the authors offer parents a long, hard look at what boys are watch ing, reading, hearing, and doing. They give parents advice on how to talk with their sons about these troubling images and provide them with tools to help their sons resist these mes sages and be their unique selves.
