  • Man-Making - Men Helping Boys on their Journey to Manhood (2006)
    The Ancient Call: For thousands of years, in cultures around the world, when the time was right the men of the village came for the adolescent boys. Guiding young males toward a solid and responsible manhood was men's sacred work. Today, too many men are not answering this man-making call. The result is an epidemic of lost, damaged, and under-male-nourished boys.

    Man-Making is a practical and inspirational guide book that shows men how to awaken and apply their instinctive man-making skills. By following the easy, "how to" instructions, and reading the many stories men have contributed, every man, regardless of his level of commitment to this work, will find something he can do to help a boy or boys on their journey to manhood.

    As a man reading this book, you will:

    • Realize how adolescent boys desperately need men in their lives.

    • Recognize that you already possess all the knowledge and instinctual talents needed to move young males toward successful manhood.

    • Learn about five types of involvement and a broad range of man-making actions that make a positive difference in boys’ lives.

    • Discover the many ways your life and others’ will be transformed when you use your natural skills as a maker of men.

    Your Call to Action: If you're a man, you wouldn't be reading this if you hadn't heard the man-making call. Right now, there are boys around you who need the benefit of your wisdom and support to grow into responsible and self-assured men. You are the right man for this work, now is the time, and the boys are waiting.

    This book is the answer to the call you hear. Will you answer?

  • Finding Love on Purpose (2004)

  • A Leader's Guide to Fighting Invisible Tigers: A Stress Management Guide for Teens (1995) by Connie Schmitz with Earl Hipp

  • The Caring Circle: A Facilitator's Guide to Support Groups Based on the Book Feed Your Head (1992)

  • Fighting Invisible Tigers: A Stress Management Guide for Teens (1982, 2006, 2008 release) with Michael Fleishman
    This book was written to help young people understand what was going on "inside" when they are at the limits of their ability to cope with their world. They will learn about the "normal" feelings, physical symptoms, and other signals that indicate a person is living too close to the edge. It also describes both long-term (life skills) and short-term strategies for becoming more stress resilient.

    The "Tiger Bites" section, in the middle of the book, talks about things a person can do RIGHT NOW, in those crisis moments when they are feeling totally stressed out, scared and don't know where to turn.

    Note:   Fighting Invisible Tigers has sold over a quarter of a million copies since the original was published in 1982.

  • Understanding the Human Volcano: What Teens Can Do About Violence (2000) with L. K. Hanson, illustrator
    All young people today (and their parents) feel a growing concern for their safety, have some anxiety about their classmates, and are experiencing the loss of security that should be their right. Speaking directly, frankly, and compassionately to teens, Earl Hipp helps them cope in an increasingly violent and less secure world. Hipp also shows them how to do something about violence.

  • Help for the Hard Times: Getting Through Loss (1995) with L. K. Hanson, illustrator
    Adolescence is another word for loss. It's a time in almost every young persons life when they experience a few major losses and endless smaller losses. Unfortunately, this is also a time of life when they have little understanding of how to cope with the big feelings that result.

    Help for the Hard Times, provides an emotional map of the complicated territory that surrounds every loss. The book uses lots of testimony from others, young and old, who've been there and who bring valuable lessons to share. It describes the predictable and necessary stages of the grief experience and offers a prescription for negotiating each stage. This book not only helps kids deal with immediate losses, but teaches them a set of critical life skills, that they will use the rest of their lives.

  • Feed Your Head: Some Excellent Stuff on Being Yourself (1991) with L. K. Hanson, illustrator
    This book contains more that thirty short chapters on topics of interest to young people. Topics such as:

    • The Perfect Body

    • Sideways Anger

    • Eskimo Feelings

    • About Parents

    • Why Kids Use

    • SEX-You Need To Know

    • The Courage To Dream

    • If-Only-ing Yourself

    • and many more.

    Each chapter is full of helpful information and a "What Other Kids Say" section so young people can hear and learn from their peers.

    The quick-read chapters that are just right for a busy young person. Just leave it around or give it to a young person you care about. It's a great way to quietly say, "I care about you."

    This book is used widely in school and church based support groups. There is a companion guide available for adults who are doing support groups with kids. It's called The Caring Circle: A Facilitator's Guide to Support Groups. The guide has instructions on how to start and run a successful group and 38 Great Handouts for group discussion.  Ages 9-12.
