Format: Paperback
If you want to understand how to communicate with adolescents who are being rejected by others, then this is the book to read. There's always more to behaviour than meets the eye and the author explains clearly what is going on underneath the protective exterior - usually a vulnerable wounded Self that the child has had to keep hidden from further harm. What is special about this book is how the author explains all the information we need without going into territory that is beyond what we can take in. He then shows how we can approach the Omnipotent Self of the teenager in order to be allowed sight of the Wounded Self, and maybe to communicate with it. He uses the very understandable metaphors of hostage negotiation and supervised access and then follows on with lots of chapters on how to make links through adolescent culture - movies, stories, rap, superheroes etc. This is an author who is writing from his experience of this work, and the summaries and charts, together with various case studies, make the book wholly valuable. I only wish the binding of the book was as first-rate. But don't let that put you off. David Taransaud knows what he's talking about and it's relevant to all of us who work in any way with young adults.

This is an excellent and practical resource for anyone who has anything to do with teenagers, whether as a therapist, counsellor, teacher, teaching assistant or a struggling parent. The book is very accessible with incredibly useful tools in engaging with troubled teenagers. He shows a tremendous compassion and understanding of these young people that are often all to relegated to the beyond help and impossible to engage with category. He gives windows to their world and helps to provide a bridge to engage with them.

I've never been moved to write a review before and I've read many books on education. This is a very special book. It's essential reading for anyone working with "troubled" young people. I have worked with young people with "EBD" (I don't like those labels) for many years and I have learnt so much from this book I couldn't put down. It is now covered with post-it notes and pencil marks. I am inspired. Thank you.
