This book is a welcome resource for all those who work with young teens. It covers topics like coping with the death of a parent or sibling, depression, alcoholism, and drugs. It also offers insightful prayers and reinforcing activities that will comfort as well as strengthen young teens as they try to better understand and cope with their losses. it is ideal for parochial school programs, intergenerational events, retreats, family devotions, and more.
The pastoral approach of Guiding Young Teens through Life's Losses makes it a must-have resource for catechists and youth ministers.
Loss can take many forms: a missing assignment, the loss of
a friend, an accident, and the loss of a parent. One of the
most difficult and delicate things a catechist has to do is
be present to a teen during times of loss. Helping the young
person pray together with his/her peers is an effective
pastoral approach to dealing with grief. Each of the
fifteen prayer services in this resource is developed
around a clear, creative, ready-to-use format. While
these prayers and activities are intended for use with
young teens in faith formation sessions, they can easily
be adapted for use in small and large groups of worship,
education, outreach, and nurture opportunities.
