Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) February 16, 2015
Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, MCC, SCAC, BCC, the foremost expert in the field of ADHD coaching for youth, has been interviewed by Fran Fisher in her newly released book, The Illusion of Hopelessness, about her 20+ years of experience coaching at-risk youth worldwide.
In Fran Fischer’s new book, The Illusion of Hopelessness, Master Certified Coach and author Fran Fisher shares the story of her client Craig Trowhill, who experienced gang violence on the streets of Toronto before turning around his life and helping others as a coach. Told through interviews with Trowhill and others who are incorporating a coaching approach in their programs, The Illusion of Hopelessness shares how aspects of the Coaching model are being used successfully across a range of programs for at-risk youth.
•Parents will learn effective ways of supporting youth through their adolescent years—and beyond—for a healthy, happy, and productive life.
•Non-profit organizations will be able to validate their vision and mission, while learning new tools, best practices, and resources.
•Teens will be inspired by Craig Trowhill's story, and learn they have the strengths and capacities to live true to who they are.
•Educators, Law Enforcement, Social Service, and Foster parents will see how they can apply the empowerment approach in their connections with children and teenagers.
Already, Fisher’s book is being lauded by those who work with young people. "The Illusion of Hopelessness is a guiding light for those who want to learn the intricacies involved with being an empowering presence in someone's life,” said Diana Dollar, Executive Director, The Prosperity Agenda. “The practical nature of the conversational style presented here is the kind of tool anyone could use to overcome those 'stuck' moments in working with youth."
“As a parent of three, I learned more effective ways to help my children believe in themselves and take responsibility for their choices,” said Dr. Madi Navon, CEO of Geneva Consulting. “As a professor for more than 500 students a year, I learned ways I can apply the empowerment approach with my students, so they grow more to their potential.”
Sleeper-Triplett developed the first research-based coach training focused on youth with ADHD. Her book, Empowering Youth with ADHD, is the core of the JST Coaching training programs and a highly acclaimed tool for parents and professionals alike. She is available for both media interviews, as well as speaking engagements to discuss her work and her contribution to The Illusion of Hopelessness. Find more information at http://www.jstcoach.com.
