Youth culture changes rapidly, so those in the position to counsel teens often find themselves ill-informed and ill-prepared to deal with the issues that teens routinely encounter today. The Quick-Reference Guide to Counseling Teenagers provides the answers.


It is an A-Z guide for assisting people-helpers–pastors, professional counselors, youth workers, and everyday believers–to easily access a full array of information to aid them in (formal and informal) counseling situations. Each of the 40 topics covered follows a helpful eight-part outline and identifies:


  1. typical symptoms and patterns
  2. definitions and key thoughts
  3. questions to ask
  4. directions for the conversation
  5. action steps
  6. biblical insights
  7. prayer starters
  8. recommended resources

“If you do any type of counseling or ministry with teenagers whatsoever, you will need this book. It’s easy to use and provides great starter questions and resources for further study.” – Leslie Vernick, LCSW, counselor, speaker, and author of The Emotionally Destructive Relationship
