Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How do adolescents' problem behaviours develop? Why is the suicide rate among teenagers increasing? Are there reliable ways to prevent these problems?

Addressing these and related issues, the contributors to this book utilize their experience in research, clinical and medical settings to explore adolescent dysfunctional behaviour.

The book concludes with a comparison of home-based, school-based and combined//coordinated treatment strategies.

Book News Annotation:

Contributors from research, clinical, and medical settings discuss how problem behaviors develop in adolescents, why teen crime and suicide are increasing, and whether reliable methods exist to prevent or treat such problems. They establish a theoretical framework; focus on particular behaviors such as anxiety disorders, hyperactivity, depression, and schizophrenia; and discuss the potential of home-based and school-based service delivery and coordinated systems of care. Paper edition (unseen), $24.95.
