Born to Be Wild: Why Teens Take Risks, and How We Can Help Them Keep Safe. Jess Shatkin, $35.00

Texting while driving. Binge-drinking. Bullying. Unprotected sex. There are plenty of reasons for parents to worry about getting a late-night call about their teen. But most of the advice parents and educators hear about teens is outdated and unscientific — and simply doesn’t work.

Acclaimed adolescent psychiatrist and educator Jess Shatkin brings more than two decades’ worth of research and clinical experience to the subject, along with cutting-edge findings from brain science, evolutionary psychology, game theory, and other disciplines — plus a widely curious mind and the perspective of a concerned dad himself. Using science and stories, fresh analogies, clinical anecdotes, and research-based observations, Shatkin explains:

  • Why “scared straight,” adult logic, and draconian punishment don’t work
  • Why the teen brain is “born to be wild” — shaped by evolution to explore and take risks
  • The surprising role of brain development, hormones, peer pressure, screen time, and other key factors
  • What parents and teachers can do–in everyday interactions, teachable moments, and specially chosen activities and outings–to work with teens’ need for risk, rewards and social acceptance, not against it

Managing School Absenteeism at Multiple Tiers provides an integrative strategy for preventing, assessing, and addressing cases of youth with school absenteeism at multiple levels of severity and complexity.

This user-friendly, practical guide will be useful to mental health professionals, school administrators, guidance counselors, social workers and psychologists, as well as others who address kids with problematic absenteeism such as pediatricians and probation officers.

Outrageous Behavior Modification, 2nd Edition. Barry Christian, $49.95

Developed by eccentric school psychology practitioners, this outrageous text introduces such methods as planned confusion, disruptive word pictures, unconscious suggestion, double-bind predictions, off-the-wall interpretations, and even some straight-face paradoxical assignments. It’s perfect for educators who have had enough behavior management theory but not enough success in managing difficult students. Many of the methods presented are powerfully hypnotic and strategic in nature and are intended to effectively neutralize student resistance at a deeper personality level.

Not intended for average kids who may be having a bad day, these methods were developed specifically for those hard core ‘you can’t make me’ students. In fact, the OBM has been described as “programmatic judo” that actually uses student resistance to fuel compliance. To help introduce the teacher to OBM practice, this book is filled with step-by-step protocols, scripts, coupons, behavior permits, stimulus cards, and wacky assignments for oppositional students.

The Teacher's Guide to Student Mental Health. William Dikel, $42.00

Across Canada and the United States, school districts and school boards are recognizing the importance of comprehensive approaches to student mental health that include teacher education. From anxiety and depression to ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, behavior disorders, substance use disorders, and psychoses, this practical book provides essential information on how mental health disorders are diagnosed and treated, how they tend to manifest at school, and how they affect students’ emotions, behaviors, and ability to learn.

They will also learn how to communicate effectively with their school teams (and student families) to ensure that school mental health staff (psychologists, social workers, counselors, and nurses) will be able to provide appropriate interventions for students in need. Administrators will learn the importance of creating a district mental health plan that clearly defines the roles of teachers, mental health staff, principals, and others, with the goal of establishing a seamless system of coordinated professionals all working to meet the student’s needs.

The Thriving Adolescent: Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Positive Psychology to Help Teens Manage Emotions, Achieve Goals, and Build Connections. Louise Hayes, Joseph Ciarrochi, $84.95

Adolescents face unique pressures and worries. Will they pass high school? Should they go to college? Will they find love? And what ways do they want to act in the world? The uncertainty surrounding the future can be overwhelming. Sadly, and all too often, if things don’t go smoothly, adolescents will begin labeling themselves as losers, unpopular, unattractive, weird, or dumb. And, let’s not forget the ubiquitous ‘not good enough’ story that often begins during these formative years. These labels are often carried forward throughout life. So what can you do, now, to help lighten this lifelong burden?

The Thriving Adolescent offers teachers, counselors, and mental health professionals powerful techniques for working with adolescents. Based in proven- effective acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), the skills and tips outlined in this book will help adolescents and teens manage difficult emotions, connect with their values, achieve mindfulness and vitality, and develop positive relationships with friends and family. The evidence-based practices in this book focus on developing a strong sense of self, and will give adolescents the confidence they need to make that difficult transition into adulthood.

Whether it’s school, family, or friend related, adolescents experience a profound level of stress, and often they lack the psychological tools to deal with stress in productive ways. The skills we impart to them now will help set the stage for a happy, healthy adulthood. If you work with adolescents or teens, this is a must-have addition to your professional library.
