Depression, violence, pressures to succeed, eating disorders -- being a teenager seems more difficult with every generation. Confronted daily with demands from parents, teachers, and peers, teens have to have refusal skills and positive attitudes to meet the challenges of life in a world which requires them to grow up before their time. Without patronizing or lecturing, Teen Esteem helps teenagers develop the skills needed to handle peer pressure, substance abuse, sexual expression, and more. The second edition includes new material on avoiding violence, healthy ways to deal with anger (in oneself and in others), and being "safely assertive." Teen Esteem is for: every teenager who is being told to "just say no"; parents; school teachers and counselors; youth workers; family therapists.
