The Courage to Change: A Teen Survival Guide
Edited by Brenda Zosky Proulx.
Published by Second Story Press, 2001.
|Teens talking to teens in a powerful new book where formerly
violent young people speak out to their peers. Not all teenagers start out with
the skills and experience to make appropriate choices. Yet through bravery,
perseverance and the willingness of someone to listen, many have discovered
creative ways to initiate positive change in their lives.
The Courage to Change: A Teen Survival Guide is a unique compilation of real-life stories and striking black and white photographs by formerly violent teens. They grapple with issues of bullying, neglect, self-image, domestic violence and sexual abuse that are sometimes compounded by drug abuse and criminal behaviour. Their stories provide rare insight into the treacherous journey through teen life. Ideal for schools, the concluding chapters provide both insights by adults/experts and questions teachers can use to explore the various issues in their classrooms.
