Developing Emotional Literacy With Teenage Boys challenges young men to acknowledge the importance of emotional development and covers behavior-related issues. Statistics indicate that males make up a disproportionate number of children with behavior problems and with learning problems, giving rise to concerns about young men's ability to maintain relationships.

Providing comprehensive facilitator's notes, this research-based book, with accompanying CD-ROM, covers topics that include:

  • Appearance
  • Girl friends
  • Sex
  • Tolerance
  • Drugs awareness
  • Crime and punishment
