Out of the Woods: Tales of Resilient Teens Adolescent Lives

#ad
Harvard University Press #ad - They’re off drugs and on the right side of the law. Even in the early days, the resilient kids had a grasp of how they contributed to their own troubles. They are out of control―violent or suicidal, in trouble with the law, unpredictable, and dangerous. What happened? how did some kids stumble out of the woods while others remain lost? Could their strikingly different futures have been predicted back during their teenage struggles? The kids provide the answers in a series of interviews that began during their hospitalizations and ended years later.

They’re not just failing in school, not just using drugs. Listening in on interviews through the years, narratives that are often poignant, frequently funny, sometimes dramatic, we hear the kids growing into more composed―yet always recognizable―versions of their tough and feisty selves. Twenty years later, most of them still struggle.

Out of the Woods: Tales of Resilient Teens Adolescent Lives #ad - But astonishingly, a handful are thriving. They’ve finished school and hold jobs that matter to them. They have close friends and are responsible, loving parents. In their own impatient voices, Out of the Woods portrays edgy teenagers developing into thoughtful, responsible adults.
