Adolescence is a crucial developmental phase in life. Experience has shown us that a troubled adolescence can negatively affect healthy functioning in adulthood and that managing difficult issues promptly ensures a better outcome for the emerging adolescent self and eventual adult self. Dr Terri Henderson’s clinical experience working with adolescents for more than a decade has shown her that the challenges that adolescents face are many, but relatively similar, regardless of culture or background. This book aims to guide adolescents, and those who care for and work with them, to better understand these challenges and how to deal with them. Adolescents have much to offer, and a better understanding of our teens is advantageous to all. Using a conversational style with relatable text, Dr Henderson hopes that teens will find a welcome “friend” in this book; understand that they are not alone – their experiences are shared by countless others; and that they will benefit from the practical guidance and support provided.
