Worthman, Christopher
Journal of At-Risk Issues, v6 n2 p41-45 Win-Spr 2000
Discusses how people interpret others' experiences and understandings, particularly when they differ from their own. Describes experiences with African American teenagers from an inner city theater ensemble who were successful but struggled to do what many people take for granted. Suggests that people working with at-risk teenagers should examine their assumptions and work toward an "and/but" relationship with them. (SM)
