Derek V. Schuster launches his first book Youth in Jeopardy

July 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

In this complex world of today, with so many “at risk” tweens and teens grappling with issues, problems and crises, can a fresh perspective on their trials and tribulations help to turn them around?

Shelves and shelves of books have been written about children who are at risk of violent and criminal behavior, but their authors are writing from their academic perches – rather than addressing real experiences in the streets and in the homes of at-risk families.

Youth in Jeopardy offers a practical alternative. Instead of presenting dry academic studies about the “at risk” population, it draws on the author’s 20+ years of experience in violence prevention work in the Bronx and East Harlem. Filled with gut-wrenching anecdotes, it delivers what parents, therapists, and teachers nationwide desperately seek: fresh, practical approaches to violence prevention for rebellious tweens and teens.
