A Part of You So Deep: What Vulnerable Adolescents Have to Say About Spirituality

A Part of You So Deep: What Vulnerable Adolescents Have to Say About Spirituality. (2004). Melanie Wilson. 48 pp. 

This groundbreaking report is the second in a series by Youth Catalytics (then NEN) exploring spirituality in the lives of troubled adolescents. The first report, Practice Unbound, examined the therapeutic use of spiritually oriented activities by 200 youth-service agencies across the country. A Part of You So Deep focuses on teens themselves, using extensive focus group interviews, personal interviews and surveys to uncover their experiences of spirituality and their attitudes toward a variety of spiritual activities, both secular and religious. The findings, full of passion, confusion, disappointment, and yearning, illuminate the complicated inner world of our society’s most vulnerable teenagers, and offer crucial insight to counselors, teachers and anyone else committed to nurturing the spiritual lives of young people.

“As the Talk About Wellness initiative concludes twelve years of work in the areas of wellness, resilience and mindfulness, we would like to take this time to praise our fiscal sponsor, Youth Catalytics.  As fiscal sponsor, evaluator and author of our final report, they continually held very high standards of integrity and professionalism. Additionally, our early work was supported by their research, particularly the report A Part of You So Deep: What Vulnerable Adolescents Have to Say About Spirituality.”
