The Drug Alternative.
While this book is directed toward educators and counselors, its concepts are applicable to all who work with youth, including parents. What the author does is to look honestly at one fact--that a linkage exists between serious drug misuse and lack of self-esteem--and to turn this fact around to encourage the building of self-esteem from K-12 as the best defense against self-destructive behavior such as serious drug misuse. In consideration of this book's content, people whose lives and work brought them to the drug scene have shared counsel and the common conviction that application of these ideas can both enrich life and enhance awareness of its worth. The book is for anyone concerned with the desensitizing aspects of our time. (Author/PC)
