Robert Dykstra traces the roots of youth's troubles to a despair that reflects hopelessness about a meaningful future. But these sixteen- to twenty-one-year-olds can experience newness, surprise, and hope by drawing on a sound foundation, grounded in the knowledge of God's love and care for them. This valuable resource is ideal for counselors, pastors, and parents.
The purpose of the Counseling and Pastoral Theology series is to address clinical issues that arise among particular populations currently neglected in the literature on pastoral care and counseling. This series is committed to enhancing both the theoretical base and the clinical expertise of pastoral caregivers by providing a pastoral theological paradigm that will inform both assessment and intervention with persons in these specific populations.
