Praise for the first edition "Based on solid research and years of insightful observation, Hurt offers a deep and penetrating look into the contemporary adolescent experience that will serve us well as we work to have a prophetic, preventive, and redemptive influence on the world of today's youth culture."-- Walt Mueller , Center for Parent/Youth Understanding "A daring yet hopeful glance into the underworld of teen promiscuity, self-mutilation, and suicide. . . . A groundbreaking resource for parents, youth ministers, and counselors."-- ForeWord "Clark's classic book [is] highly recommended by youth workers and educators who write about teenage stress. It is foundational reading that provides valuable insight into the hurting hearts of young people."-- YouthWorker Journal "Clark has been stepping inside the world of teenagers for many years.

Back Cover Copy
Youth ministry expert Chap Clark substantially updates and revises his groundbreaking book with a new chapter on youth at society's margins; fresh material on social networking and gaming; and the latest research, statistics, and documentation throughout. "The youth of our culture have been deeply wounded by our collective neglect and adult-driven self-focus. Young people need adults to understand what they are going through and people to care about them without a personal agenda. This book was very helpful to me, and my attitude toward teens will never be the same."-- Doug Fields , speaker; author, Speaking to Teenagers "As parents of teenagers and as a family deeply invested in developing the leadership potential of young men and women, my wife and I recognize in Hurt 2.0 what we have been seeing and sensing but haven't been able to name. Chap Clark's research has helped us to understand what kids today are experiencing and how we can create a better present and a brighter future for our youth."-- Eric McAfee , Silicon Valley entrepreneur; venture capitalist; chairman, McAfee Capital "Based on solid research and years of insightful observation, Clark's Hurt 2.0 serves to open the eyes of parents, youth workers, pastors, educators, and youth-serving professionals to realities from which the church has too often chosen to look away. Hurt 2.0 offers a deep and penetrating look into the contemporary adolescent experience that will serve us well as we work to have a prophetic, preventive, and redemptive influence on the world of today's youth culture."-- Walt Mueller , president, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding "Chap Clark has spent years studying the lives and hearts of kids, and as parents of three teenagers, we are personally grateful for his insight and work. In Hurt 2.0 , Chap takes us deeper into their world, helping us to better understand not only our own kids but also all young people."-- Ronnie Lott , former All-Pro, NFL defensive back, and Karen Lott , children's advocate
