This practical training DVD and Participant's Guide covers the continuum of private and public crisis, equipping volunteer youth workers to work with their kids to deal with any crisis in a way that helps the individual and helps the family stay intact. The Volunteer's Guide to Helping Teenagers in Crisis training curriculum is important right now because kids are at risk. It is a practical resource for the whole crisis continuum, culminating in a basic training of IF and WHEN. IF this ever happens, here are the steps to take. WHEN this happens-and it will, whether you're prepared or not-here are the steps to take.
