At the Mercy of Externals:Righting Wrongs and Protecting Kidsby David L. Roberts, Ph. D. David L. Roberts
At the Mercy of Externals: Righting Wrongs and Protecting Kids deals extensively with adult roles and responsibilities and the damage done when these obligations are not met. David Roberts' FLAGS Model graphically reveals how adults tend to act out emotion-based anxiety and depression, which is rooted in negative emotions associated with a history of abuse and victimization.
A number of lists critical to understanding the FLAGS model enable you to relate to the material on a personal level, and customize the subject matter to your own situation. While much of the focus is on parenting, other types of adult roles are addressed.
Of particular interest is the impact of abuse on kids outside the home or family. At the Mercy of Externals offers solutions found through critical thinking and by challenging myths accepted as truth.
Dr. Roberts specializes in working with at risk youth including juvenile offenders and gang members. He views his work as a form of spiritual outreach to misunderstood kids. His concepts are widely accepted and easily applicable to groups regardless of cultural and ethnic differences.
