Multicultural Counseling with Teenage Fathers: A Practical Guide

Front Cover
SAGE, Aug 3, 1995 - Political Science - 420 pages
0 Reviews
An up-to-date and in-depth guide for dealing with teenage fathers, this volume provides a framework for responding to not only the general but also the culturally specific needs of any given unwed teen father. Offering perceptive solutions, the author significantly contributes to the existing literature on how to help teenage men who face unplanned, out-of-wedlock fatherhood by providing clear and concise guidance within the web of legal, family, and personal issues surrounding teenage fatherhood. The book examines the role of the teenage father's relationships - to his parents, his child, the mother of his child and her parents, and his peers - as they relate to his adjustment and changing worldview. While sensitive to cultural considerations, Mark S. Kiselica illuminates ways in which to encourage teenage fathers to take control of their lives and act responsibly regardless of cultural background.
