Youth Development Theory & Practice: Integrating a Trauma Framework -- A Social Justice Approach
In honor of what would have been my mother's 93rd birthday on May 2, 2023, I am excited to announce the launch of my book: Youth Development Theory & Practice: Integrating a Trauma Framework -- A Social Justice Approach. Consolidating 10 years of my work with afterschool providers, this book is written for people who are not in the mental health field and who work with young people impacted by trauma. Below is an excerpt from the back cover:
"....offering practical knowledge that can be implemented immediately, I hope this book improves the lives of young people impacted by trauma, validates the experience of frontline staff, and encourages funders to rethink their grantmaking assumptions and practices."
I have also written a companion workbook that contains practical handouts, activities, guiding questions, and examples to support the implementation of my model. Both the book and workbook are available on amazon.com. A limited number can be purchased directly from me (email me if interested).
ORDER NOW AT DISCOUNTED PRICE! Price increases June 20, 2023.
