Big Questions, Worthy Dreams : Mentoring Young Adults in Their Search for Meaning, Purpose, and Faith - 00 edition

Big Questions, Worthy Dreams : Mentoring Young Adults in Their Search for Meaning, Purpose, and Faith (ISBN10: 0787941719; ISBN13: 9780787941710)
ISBN13: 978-0787941710
ISBN10: 0787941719

Summary: The "twenty-something" years of young adulthood are increasingly recognized as critical but puzzling. Building on the foundation she established in her classic work, The Critical Years, Sharon Parks urges thoughtful adults to assume responsibility for providing strategic mentorship during this important decade in life. She reveals also, however, the ways young adults are influenced not only by individual mentors but also by mentoring environments.

Features:
  • Parks explores young adulthood as a unique time for reexamining of faith and belief and invites concerned readers to provide thoughtful mentorship and mentoring environments during these "wilderness years." She draws on her own research and insights from developmental psychology, religion, theology, leadership, and ethics to help professionals, educators, community leaders, and parents understand the underlying developmental patterns of this unique time of life, when one is no longer a youth and yet not quite an adult. She encourages us to recognize the many ways in which we can responsibly serve as guides and mentors to young adults as they search for meaning and faith. Only by making the most of this searching time in a person's life, Parks maintains, can we help young adults discover worthy dreams and foster the kind of citizenship and leadership so clearly needed in the twenty-first century.
