Supporting Parents of Teenagers Summary

Supporting Parents of Teenagers: A Handbook for Professionals by John Coleman

The parenting of teenagers has emerged as a key public, political and social concern in recent years and Supporting Parents of Teenagers meets the growing need for relevant resources and research findings in this area. This handbook provides a review of current policy developments, from crime and disorder legislation to youth offending teams. It addresses the practical issues of how to assess and provide support for parents and covers all aspects of the field, including parenting orders, the use of the parent advisor model, setting up a parenting teenagers group, involving fathers as well as mothers of teenagers and working with ethnic minorities. Examining the conflicting needs of young people and their parents and how best to address them, this book is an essential resource for all those working to support the parents of teenagers.

Supporting Parents of Teenagers Reviews

Supporting Parents of Teenagers tackles many questions regarding both policy and practice, and is therefore an extremely welcome addition to the literature. The book is entirely readable, clearly structured, bringing together a collection of writers from a variety of areas and expertise, who are addressing a wide range of issues. The book sets out to share the existing information about both research and practice between all those involved in the field of parenting teenagers. In this reviewer's opinion it succeeds in doing more than that, as it not only brings together some of the most up-to-date research findings, but also addresses questions about the purpose of providing support for parents and offers ways forward in relation to future policy and practice. -- Infant and Child Development
All the contributors to this handbook for professionals are engaged in providing support services to parents of adolescents... Social workers, GPs and teachers may not have the time or expertise to provide continuing support, but at least they should know where it might be found. This collection does a useful job of describing what is available, including chapters on teenagers from ethnic minorities, families caught up in the youth justice system, and telephone helplines. -- Community Care
Supporting Parents of Teenagers: A Handbook for Professionals, through its varied testimonies and examples from the many worlds of parents and teenagers provides a resource for continuous concerns about the lived experience of parents and teenagers. -- British Journal of Social Work
