Peter, Val J.; Dowd, Tom
Using a journal format, this book invites teens to examine their lives and relationships with family, friends, classmates, and new acquaintances. The book focuses on physical, emotional, and sexual boundaries to relationships and uses stories of other teens to illustrate how personal space and feelings can be either respected or violated in relationships with others. The book shows teens how to build close and satisfying friendships while guarding against being used or abuse by others. The chapters are: (1) "Boundaries"; (2) "Healthy Boundaries"; (3) "Unhealthy Boundaries"; (4) "Grooming," focusing on "emotional grooming" tactics used to gain control of another person's behavior; (5) "Relationships"; (6) "Friendships," and (7) "Relationships and Your Future."
