Roy addresses the unfortunate but common reality that for many people, including teens, the holiday season is not 'the most wonderful time of year.' As Roy illustrates, some teens experience grief, loneliness, frustration, fatigue, and deep sadness. Divorce, family strife, loss of of a loved one, and other factors can keep young people from experiencing the rest, peace, and joy that the holiday season can offer. Roy offers practical strategies and insights into helping adults recognize the signs of a young person's sadness or malaise and how to help them combat those feelings.
