Foreword
As we all evolve and adapt to advances in “connecting to” our families,
friends, and the larger world, the challenge to build a healthy and strong
sense of self among the young remains a constant. Parents, teachers, and
administrators play a key role in this wellness orientation. Each must ask:
What can I do to enhance the development of positive attitudes, social
skills, and styles of thinking with my student(s)? This refreshingly integrat-
ed book provides a treasure trove of exercises, ideas, and complimentary
Internet resources to all seeking an answer to that question. Written in a
style both appealing and relevant to the high school student, this book is a
fun and interactive learning experience.
