Copied ad verbatim from promotional e-mail that was forwarded to me by a friend :

Are you a parent, teacher, counselor or a youth worker? If so you will be equally concerned as we are about the problems, challenges and difficulties confronting teenagers today. Some of you may already be despairing by their irrational demands and at your wit's end on how to help or support them.

The issues challenging all of us who deal with teenagers cut across all nationalities and ethnic groups. It is not easy dealing with youth. Disobedient and unruly kids are hard to love. The irony is that these are the kids who need our help and love the most when they are acting the worst. We need a paradigm shift to start seeing them as kids with problems instead of problem kids.

How would you like to share your views with a counselor who has more than 30 years of counseling experience with youths?

Life College is pleased to bring you Dr. Larry Keefauver, a reknowned counselor, award winning author of numerous best sellers on counseling & parenting and a much sought after speaker all over the world.

You are specially invited to attend this life changing event. For more information on the seminar, please log on to our website (http://www.lifecollege.edu.my/english/CounselSeminar_DrLarry.html).

Please call us at 03-77858590 or email us listing the contacts of your friends whom you believe will benefit from this seminar.

The insights and tools you learn can help you address some of the challenges you face handling kids with problems. More than that, there are loads of young people out there who may be desperately waiting for you to reach out to them. The seminar will be held on Saturday, 30th July 2005 from 9am to 5pm at Life College.

His counseling course is designed to help develop and equip counselors to be effective both as a listener and a communicator; both to understand and provide enlightenment; to tackle simple to complex issues.

Dr. Keefauver has written over 50 books including the best-selling book, “Friend to Friend”, a peer counseling book for teenagers used widely in government schools to train youths in how to solve problems and make positive decisions. “Right from Wrong” is a book he wrote with Josh McDowell while “Kids killing Kids”was written in collaboration with Dr. Linda Mintle. The books address the causes of societal violence among teenagers and the psychological and roots of violence among teenagers.

As a popular conference speaker, Dr. Keefauver annually keynotes the National Association of Marriage Educators in America as well as conducts marriage seminars around the world.

Dr. Larry resides with his wife Judi in Florida and they have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.

In addition, with over 30 years of experience in marriage and family counseling, Dr. Larry is also one of the most sought after speakers on family issues. He is a regular guest on national television programs including Fox Family Channel's “Marriage and Family Magazine”.

Dr. Larry travels widely teaching and training family educators, family counselors, community leaders and social services professionals. Dr. Larry and Judi have literally held thousands of counseling sessions with married couples. Besides conducting parenting and marriage seminars in North & South America and Europe, Dr. Larry is familiar with Asian family issues, having been invited regularly to speak in countries such as Indonesia, Singapore, Nepal, India, Taiwan and Malaysia.

He was a guest speaker at The International Family Conference 2001 organized by The Ministry of Women & Family Development, Malaysia. In Taiwan, over 3 million viewers watch each of Dr. Larry's “Family Forum” TV program.

An award winning author, Dr. Larry has written books and curriculum studies including the best sellers “Proactive Parenting: The Early Years” & “The 77 Irrefutable Truths of Parenting”, books for parents on practical truths in building healthy relationships between parents and children.

I've read of Dr. Larry's books and recommend them for new parents like me ;)
