Between Form and Freedom
Being a Teenager
Between Form and Freedom offers a wealth of insights about teenagers and a compassionate, intelligent, and intuitive look into the minds of children and adolescents. Betty Staley explores the nature of adolescence and considers teenagers' needs in relation to family, friends, schools, love, and the arts. She also deals with issues of stress, depression, drug and alcohol abuse, and eating disorders.
Since its first publication in 1988, Between Form and Freedom has been reprinted many times and has been published in several languages. This is a valuable guide and inspiration for all parents of teenagers.
“In this excellent book, Betty Staley has given us a compassionate, intelligent and intuitive look into the minds of adolescents.... I can only hope it will be read by a significant number of significant people—namely, parents, teachers, and, indeed, adolescents themselves.”—Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of Magical Child and The Biology of Transcendence: A Blueprint of the Human Spirit
