Despair Turned into Rage: Understanding and Helping Abused, Neglected, and Abandoned Youth
Despair Turned into Rage:
Understanding and Helping Abused, Neglected, and Abandoned Youth
       

Why do so many young people in foster care appear angry and show disrespect toward authority?

The authors assert that such antisocial behavior has its roots in the despair that children feel when they are abused, neglected or abandoned by their parents or caregivers.

Those who work with these children will benefit from the interviewing techniques that the authors describe, as well as from three intervention strategies: Three Wishes, Living Alone on an Island, and Sentence Completion.
