Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

In this book intended for young adults, contributors discuss psychology's understanding of the causes, consequences, and statistics of violence affecting teens. The 55 brief, accessible chapters are organized under the broad themes of: types of violence, violence and the teen experience, insights on recognizing and treating the consequences of abuse and violence, prevention and victims' legal rights, and sources for more information. Specific topics include abuse in families, children of addicted parents, use of computers in the sexual exploitation of children, TV and media violence and its debated effects, bullying, hazing, self-harm, teen suicide, mental health services, posttraumatic stress disorder, how to assess if a teen relationship is healthy, safety on the internet, how to report abuse or neglect, and conflict resolution, among others. This is a useful resource for schools and organizations providing services to teens and may also be a starting point in research projects.
