“They need access to easy-to-read child and youth development theory, sample activities and the range of resources available on the Internet.”

When author William B. Kearney’s niece called him requesting help managing a group of 20 teens at a summer youth program, he provided her the guidance she needed.

In Kearney’s new Spanish-language guide, “Capacitación de profesionales idóneos en desarrollo juvenile” (published by iUniverse), he touches on various aspects of the youth development training realm he gained from more than 36 years of experience in the field.

In this essential guide for those working with youth ages 6 to 18, Kearney explains the four stages of development – physical, cognitive, social and emotional – and how they relate to the successful growth and education of children and teens.

The book provides youth workers with activities and resources that are aligned with developmental needs in real time, Kearney says of his book. Resources are organized by age and the four aforementioned developmental domains to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

“After seeing hundreds of child and youth program settings, I saw the need for a resource specifically for direct-care staff and volunteers,” Kearney says. “They need access to easy-to-read child and youth development theory, sample activities and the range of resources available on the Internet.”
