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.
