In Tune with Teens: A Guide for Communicating with Adolescents.
Beck, Irene C.; Caps, John, Ed.
This guide, intended for adults who deal with adolescents, was originally designed as a companion to "No Hang-Ups!," a telephone tape call-in service addressing topics of vital concern to teenagers. The format of the guide consists of a series of brief two-page fact sheets on a wide range of adolescent issues: problems in school, teenage fears, loneliness, peer pressure, puberty, sexuality, violence, gangs, crime and legal problems, personal relationships, alcohol and drugs, family relationships, running away, and seeking help. Each fact sheet starts with a brief overview, discusses the issue from the teenager's point of view, suggests roles adults can play, and lists references on the topic for teenagers and adults. (TE)
