I, Monster is a resource for all professionals in health and education who work with challenging young people. The book aims to explain the issues behind challenging behaviour, to enable empathy, and to facilitate a more productive therapeutic relationship between the health/education professional and the child.

It is divided into three parts:

  • Part one suggests that our greatest foes lurk deep within ourselves, and that knowing our own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people (Jung, 1973).
  • Part two focuses on the inner world of adolescents who use aggression to manage early terrors.
  • Part three explores approaches and strategies to help them heal the pain of the past.

Full of case studies as well as coverage of key concepts and theory, this book offers a fascinating insight into the minds of the young people you work with.
