“In this excellent book, Betty Staley has given us a compassionate, intelligent and intuitive look into the minds of adolescents … I can only hope it will be read by a significant number of significant people-namely, parents, teachers, and, indeed, adolescents themselves.” —Joseph Chilton Pearce

Between Form and Freedom has a wealth of helpful insights about teenagers, offering a wise look into the souls of children and adolescents. Betty Staley invites you to explore the vibrant nature of adolescence – the search for the self, the birth of the intellect, the release of feeling, male–female differences and character.

Teenagers’ growth needs are explored in relation to family, friends, the media, education, the arts and love. Issues around stress, depression, eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse are tackled, clarifying the options.

Betty Staley is Programme Director of the Waldorf High School Teacher Education course. She also directs programmes for public school teachers.

Betty has been a Steiner Waldorf educator for over thirty years at kindergarten, elementary, high school as well as teacher training level. She was a founder of the Sacramento Waldorf High School where she taught history and literature for nineteen years.
