Causes, Interventions, and Prevention

Edited by:


December 1995 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
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. Topics discussed include: attention-deficit disorder; oppositional behaviours; substance abuse; rape; eating disorders; depression; and suicide. The book concludes with a comparison of home-based, school-based and combined/coordinated treatment strategies.
