The project of adolescence

Ministering to adolescents means helping them to recognize and grow into the multiple relationships in their lives, including their relationship with God. Responding to a lack of scholarly publications on ministry with adolescents within a Catholic framework, School of Theology and Ministry Associate Professor of the Practice of Youth and Young Adult Faith Theresa O’Keefe wrote Navigating toward Adulthood: A Theology of Ministry with Adolescents (Paulist Press, 2018). The book is an important tool for those learning to minister to adolescents and young adults. O’Keefe explores what it takes to move from an instrumental engagement with the world (childhood) to a relational engagement with the world (adulthood) within a framework of developmental psychology and Catholic theology. She talked about her book in this video via BC Libraries.
