Overview

Intervention with Children and Adolescents: An Interdisciplinary Perspective
Paula Allen-Meares, Ph.D., University of Michigan
Mark W. Fraser, Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Using a risk and resilience orientation, this text offers a diverse interdisciplinary perspective and practice guidelines for designing and implementing interventions across a wide range of social and health problems in childhood and adolescence for practitioners, students, and parents. Leading scholars from a variety of academic, political, and professional disciplines critically review literature in physical abuse, drugs, pregnancy, gangs, mental disorders, and other areas of child and adolescent practice to advocate change in child outcomes.

Highlights:

  • Case illustrations, additional reading lists, charts/tables on various interventions, and practice guidelines set this book apart from its competitors.
  • All chapters review the essential topics of risk and resilience orientation, the incidence and prevalence of social and health problems, gender and culture sensitive intervention, and protective factors and strengths.
  • Introductions to every chapter, end-of-chapter problems, and correlated readings introduce and allow students to further explore each issue of child and adolescent intervention.
