Praise for A Leader's Guide to The Struggle to Be Strong
“A unique and empowering guide for anyone concerned with youth development. A Leader’s Guide to The Struggle to Be Strong presents a creative and insightful connection of thirty stories written by teens about their own struggles to the seven resiliencies developed by Sybil and Steven Wolin. This is a masterpiece of strengths-based practice! It is refreshing and truly empowering to find a book that uses kids’ struggles and pride to help other kids identify their unique resiliencies. . . . The concrete session plans offer suggestions for group leader preparation and practical suggestions for using the thirty stories in The Struggle to Be Strong. An excellent and one-of-a-kind resource for changing hearts and minds! I will immediately give a personal copy to my teachers and group leaders.”—Erik K. Laursen, Ph.D., adjunct associate professor of education at the University of Richmond School of Professional & Continuing Studies
