Helping Kids in Crisis identifies more than 30 of the most common pastoral care issues today's young people face. Each chapter provides illustrative cases, lists signs and symptoms, and suggests when and from whom to seek additional professional help. The chapters deal with such issues as addictions, behavioral and mental illnesses, bereavement, suicide, divorce, and violence. Within each chapter are practical ideas for implementing pastoral care strategies into existing ministry programs, along with recommended resources for further study. For those who work with young people, this book should definitely be on the shelf as a mandatory reference work.
