This book is a must-read for any person, educator, parent, social services worker, and anyone who works with children in crisis. Dr. Lebrun captures the portraits of children and what has placed them in crisis. Not only does he identify the characteristics, but he provides strategies to improve the lives of these children and youth. His thoughtful perspective, coupled with his unique approaches made me want to continue to read. I know each reader will be moved to action to address these 21st century problems and issues.
