When Kids Hurt

When Kids Hurt
Help for Adults Navigating the Adolescent Maze
By Chap Clark and Steve Rabey

Chap’s 2004 book, Hurt: Inside the World of Today’s Teenagers, was a surprise success for an academic book, selling nearly 50,000 copies in a few years.

Now Chap and Steve, the editors of YouthWorker Journal, have updated the original book’s groundbreaking research and made it more accessible to non-academic audiences. When Kids Hurt also includes essays by two-dozen leading youth workers about how they have addressed the issues raised in the book through their work with teens.

Youth Today: “Each reader will experience this compelling, unsettling book in his or hew own way. Adults who care about teens might find these revelations a treasure trove, a Pandora’s box, scare tactics or old news. Some might challenge (the book’s) conclusions. Others might commit themselves to helping make teens’ lives more rewarding. Whether inspired or provoked, many will welcome such frank discussion.”

Baker Books, softcover, 2009, $13,99
