Questions that have gone unanswered – all which hangs on the teens-
This innovative book offers the large amount of information related to young people’s critical problems as viewed by themselves. It was conceived and developed within the framework of large-scale sociocultural studies curried out by Dr Bouche among thousands of teens in various regions. It will help adolescents to understand themselves better and at the same time it will help adults to understand young people and show them the most appropriate way for a dialogue based on mutual trust and respect. The teenagers had been asking tens of thousands of questions that had never been answered before related to a range of aspects of their personal life, from philosophy, family ties and peer relations, love and sexuality to health- related risks. Using a holistic approach Dr Bouche reviews all of these key subjects. The book is a first-hand source of information on what young people really want to know about their physiological and psycho-affective development. M. Bouche, CMA, 2011

As a Senior Advisor to the Governments she has been working for 30 years in Western and Eastern Europe, CIE, Africa, Asia, USA, for a range of UN specialised Agencies (UNESCO, UNICEF, UNDP, UNOPS, HCR, UNFPA, FAO), World Bank, European Union, USAID and some international NGO’s (WISH US).
