Reviews and Endorsements

'This book throws light on the nature of violence in the midst of a time in life which is not without its own turbulence. It draws on a wide range of knowledge and experience, exploring the different ways adolescents give vent to their violence, whether it be towards others or themselves. It highlights the fear that lies behind so much of the adolescent fury and calls upon all those who are involved - in the family, in the school or community - to build together the emotional and social capacity to hold and contain the strain and tension which is driving the adolescent beyond his or her own control.'
- Peter Wilson, Director, YoungMinds
