The Portland Oregonian Newspaper once said of Ruth that she "knows all about disruptive students." Her books pass that information on to you plus provide solutions for the depressed, withdrawn and sad kids too.From the Author:
When I started out as a counselor years ago, it became immediately apparent that my college training had absolutely nothing to do with the kids I was working with. If you feel your training prepared you to work with Beaver Cleaver, and you have Beavis and Butthead coming in, here are the new interventions you need to best assist today's troubled and problem youth. Honed in the trenches with some of the toughest, saddest, most abused kids in our region, these books may help more counselors, teachers and youth service providers to help more of the children and youth who struggle.
