- For More Teens, Jesus is "Cool" (ABC News)
" 'It goes back to the roots of Christianity … how to make faith relevant within the context of capitalism,' said Lynn Schofield-Clark, an assistant research professor at the University of Colorado's School of Journalism and Mass Communication who studies youth culture, marketing and religion."
"Chanon Ross is a youth minister in Naperville, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, who recently wrote an article called 'Jesus Is Not Cool.' He says that all the focus on fun and games waters down the real message — and hard work — of following a faith." 10-05

- -02-15-09 Preventing Diabetes in Teens (U.S. News)
"This has to be one of the saddest statistics ever printed in a medical journal: The number of American children taking medication for type 2 diabetes more than doubled from 2002 to 2005, particularly among teenagers. That may be partly because more children are being screened for diabetes or because drugs are more often being used to treat metabolic syndrome. But the recent rise in childhood obesity is the obvious first suspect because overweight and obese children are more than twice as likely as their normal-weight peers to develop the disease." 02-09
- For Many Teens, Hello Is Hugging (New York Times)

- Study: Cognitive Behavior Therapy Can Prevent Depression in Teens (U.S. News)
"After six months, the teens who had been in the therapy groups were less likely to have become depressed (21.4 percent vs. 32.7 percent). The therapy was most effective in preventing depression in children whose parent wasn’t depressed at the time (11.7 percent vs. 40.5 percent); its benefit disappeared if a parent of the child was depressed. Proof, if any is needed, that parents’ behavior has a huge influence on their children’s health and behavior, even when they’re teenagers."
"In cognitive therapy, a person learns to:
Distinguish between thoughts and feelings.
Become aware of how thoughts can influence feelings in ways that sometimes are not helpful.
Learn about thoughts that seem to occur automatically and how they can affect emotions.
Evaluate critically whether these 'automatic' thoughts and assumptions are accurate or perhaps biased.
Develop the skills to notice, interrupt, and correct these biased thoughts." 06-09
