Overview

Jason Wittman , M.P.S., is fond of saying, "All teens are young adults deserve 24/7 access to at least one responsible, caring adult who loves them unconditionally." Unfortunately, many teens get cut off from their families and end up on the streets fending for themselves. For the past thirty-five years, Jason has been a father figure to countless teens and young adults.

Follow Jason, the Street Shrink, as he deals with street violence, suicides, judges and cops. Be there as hopelessly lost kids begin to turn around their lives as they receive his attention and guidance. With a mixture of high drama, raw dialogue, and tender moments, this novel captures what it is like to work with street kids on their turf.

Loosely based on his real-live experiences working with kids living on their own, Jason captures the essence of what it take to work those miracles for which he has become renowned.

About the Author

Jason Wittman, M.P.S., received his master's degree in counseling psychology from Cornell University in 1975. While still a grad student, he founded and ran a residential drug rehab and then his first street program for high-risk teens. Since then, he has directed youth programs in Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona, and, for the last fifteen years, L.A. Youth Supportive Services in Hollywood, CA (la-youth.org).

Because his first love has always been working directly with high-risk teens in need, in all these programs he was the lead counselor as well as being the executive director. In addition, he has raised thirteen foster teens and has an adopted son.

Wittman also has a private practice as a life and mentor coach to parents of teens and young adults. He regularly speaks to parents' groups on teen issues and effective parenting of teens, and is the author of the forthcoming book, Parenting by Permission.
