Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Julian Stern has made an invaluable contribution to this remarkable series. The book, based on sensitive conversations with young people, identifies many situations when a young person may feel lonely - but also (most importantly) how parents, teachers and others misunderstand. Therefore, an important read not only for the young people, but also for those who care for them. -- Professor Richard Pring, Department of Educational Studies, University of Oxford Readers interested in the social and emotional development of children and youth will find Dr. Stern's book on loneliness both informative and immensely accessible. The generously illustrated narrative provides useful suggestions and needed recommendations to effectively address the issue both in school and at home. Educators and school-based counselors will find this book especially useful. -- Christopher Sink, Professor and Batten Chair, Counseling and Human Services, Old Dominion University
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
