Publishers Description

Robert Dykstra traces the roots of youth's troubles to a despair that reflects hopelessness about a meaningful future. But these sixteen- to twenty-one-year-olds can experience newness, surprise, and hope by drawing on a sound foundation, grounded in the knowledge of God's love and care for them. This valuable resource is ideal for counselors, pastors, and parents.

The purpose of the Counseling and Pastoral Theology series is to address clinical issues that arise among particular populations currently neglected in the literature on pastoral care and counseling. This series is committed to enhancing both the theoretical base and the clinical expertise of pastoral caregivers by providing a pastoral theological paradigm that will inform both assessment and intervention with persons in these specific populations.

Table of Contents  Jan 21, 2000
PART 1 -- BECOMING ONESELF: YOUTH IN DEVELOPMENTAL PERSPECTIVE Chapter 1: The Self amid Symptoms of Youthful Despair. Chapter 2: Object Relations Theory and the Borderline Self. Chapter 3: The Case of Stan. Chapter 4: Self Psychology and Pathological Narcissism. Chapter 5: The Case of John Turner. PART 2: COMING TO ONESELF: YOUTH IN ESCHATOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE Chapter 6: The Eschatological Self. Chapter 7: The Case of Laurie. Chapter 8: The Case of Bobbie Griffith. The author suggests that today's youth reflect a widespread loss of hope or faith in a meaningful future. He uses the concepts of developmental object relations theory (from James F. Masterson) and self-psychology ((from Heinz Kohut) as conversational partners with the Christian doctrine of hope (from Jurgen Moltmann). He presents the concept of "the eschatological self" which suggests that the future coming at us is just as important as our past and present, helping us to understand young people's problems as rooted in the inability to keep past and present in tension.
