Zombies are not just found in horror movies, sometimes they're lying on your living room couch. These are undead adolescents whose psychological and social development have come to a screeching halt. Torn by their yearning for freedom and their fear of surviving the outside world, they have stalled in their maturity, motivation, and purpose in life, hijacked by a helplessness and fear of responsibility. Parents often feel ill-equipped to love, support, and guide their teens - especially when they find themselves facing personal mid-life crisis, battling some of the same struggles they've witnessed in their kids.
In My Teenage Zombie board-certified psychiatrist and medical doctor David L. Henderson explains the parts of a teenage zombie (brain, heart, and spirit), how teenagers got into this undead state, and how to resurrect them back to life. Using real-life examples of families he has counselled, he describes both their physical and psychological characteristics and offers practical suggestions on how to deal with, and in many cases avoid, having a undead adolescent in your home.
