Help teens who are at risk of experiencing or perpetuating abuse with The Youth Relationships Manual. Designed to build strengths, resilience, and coping, this manual, field-tested with the Youth Relationships Project, presents proactive, competency-building approaches to promoting nonviolent relationships and preventing cycles of violence. Based on the premise that the best window of opportunity for developing healthy relationships is in adolescence, the model guides teens to positive roles in dating, peer interactions, and interpersonal style. David A. Wolfe and his associates detail a carefully developed and tested curriculum for an 18-session group training program that includes three principal sections: informational, skills building, and social action learning opportunities. As a part of the program, teens learn new communication and conflict resolution skills and practice those skills by going out into the community to solve a hypothetical problem situation. Innovative and easy to follow, The Youth Relationships Manual provides mental health professionals, school counselors and administrators, community agency workers and administrators, and students in the helping professions with a vital tool for helping teens at risk develop healthy relationships.
