– Why It Matters and What You Can Do About it
With an eye to social media use/abuse and the culture of video gaming, the revised and retitled Boys in Crisis plants itself firmly in the 21st century to address cyberbullying and boys who seem chained to their consoles. Current statistics on social media use, wireless Internet access, and prison demographics illustrate contributors to and results of the crisis. Strategies for engaging boys – and their technology – are just some of the updates readers will find helpful.
Dr. Paul Slocumb paints a riveting portrait of the emotional abyss that engulfs many of our male children. Particularly powerful are the book’s six real-life case studies and the creative solutions Slocumb describes.
We live in a high-definition world, and Boys in Crisis renders Slocumb’s approach in 16:9, well suited to the changing needs and pressures of boys in the modern age.
