The text is heavy on suggesting referrals; but, considering the seriousness of the crises described, this remains sound advice. Perhaps the most important lesson that can be taken away from the is that "it's not about me." A loving youth worker can tell when they are in over their head. This book not only gives you the means to assess this, but it serves as a guide in developing professional contacts to use in referrals when your abilities have been exhausted.
Another mantra of the book is that "your responsibility is to preserve life, not friendship." In true crisis situations, the most loving thing you can do is take action or be a whistle-blower. Rich Van Pelt and Jim Hancock equip you to do just that. To my knowledge, this is the best resource available, specifically geared for youth workers, outside LPC or other professional certification.
