    This was a really strong clinical book. Most books about trauma are either theory-heavy or solution-heavy but this one does a great job of balancing the two. It’s very well organized and the individual examples used throughout support the theoretical ideas well.

    This book presented an important theory on how to address and prevent adolescent violence. Based in empathy and validation, this theory has the potential to truly influence change in adolescent lives instead of continuing the cycle. My criticism of this book is more about the format than the content. The book is very repetitive, as if it's trying to convince me of something I am already in agreement with. Of course if you disagree with the theory, maybe the writing would be more relevant. I thin This book presented an important theory on how to address and prevent adolescent violence.

Of course if you disagree with the theory, maybe the writing would be more relevant. I think they should have spent more time giving specific examples and break downs of their method instead of pontificating about the state of the world. The introduction was great to set the stage, but it would have been more helpful to me to learn HOW to address the impact of intergenerational racism, not WHY it needs to be addressed.

    A great guide to working therapeutically with young people, especially young people of color. Hardy addresses the rage inherent in living with an oppressed identity, and the physical violence that often accompanies structural violence. He offers sound advice for finding the good in young people labeled 'bad', as well as concrete strategies for helping young people access and process their unacknowledged losses, and find productive and healthy outcomes. Highly recommended for therapists, teachers A great guide to working therapeutically with young people, especially young people of color.
