At a time when teen suicidality, self-harm, depression, and anxiety are higher than ever, Seen is just the right gift at just the right time for just the right people. Using a gentle and compassionate voice, Will and Dr. Chinwé integrate science and faith in remarkable ways that will help you see, hear, and connect with young people in your life.

Seen is the intervention that we all need! This text clearly articulates the connection between the brain, body, and despair with references to research on trauma processing, neuroscience, attachment, and child development. It also provides much needed case examples and practical tech- niques that anyone can use with children and adolescents who are in despair. If you’re a parent, mental health pro- fessional, educator, or simply part of a child’s village, you should be reading Seen right now!

The mental health crisis facing today’s children and youth is undoubtedly one of the greatest concerns for anyone working to help young people reach their full potential. As parents, educators, and community leaders, we must listen deeply to those who can provide real insight and practical assistance to help a generation move forward. As a mother, I’m grateful for Will and Chinwé’s insight, scientific research, clinical observation, and ability to guide each of us to know both when and how to act.

With increasing numbers of kids saying they’re anxious (and increasing reasons for them to be so), parents and leaders have to go beyond the easy answers and seek to understand what their kids are feeling. This book by my friends Will Hutcherson and Chinwé Williams offers real and practical steps for parents who just aren’t sure what to do next. Will approaches this from a ministry leader’s perspec- tive. Chinwé brings her experience as a licensed counselor to the conversation. With solid research, authentic exam- ples and deep empathy, they help us all see what’s right in front of us.

It's hard to think of a more important topic than this. If you need a lifeline for a kid who got swept up in the hopelessness of 2020, pick up SEEN.
