Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This practical book compiles excerpts of information from other Child Welfare League publications. Its purpose is to help parents and educators learn about the causes of violence, to recognize warning signs from children and teens with potential problems, and to decide upon treatment options. Chapters cover causes of stress experienced by youth, statistics, how depression can turn to rage, how trauma impacts society, how being abused affects youth development, and signs of attachment disorder. Corder and Brohl offer a symptom checklist, relaxation techniques, and solutions for dealing with violent youth. An especially interesting chapter, which should be read by all educators, is "Identifying Disabilities" by Arturo Hernandez. The author explains how a child might eventually become a gang member due to learning disabilities in grammar school. Once puberty kicks in, says Hernandez, a young person has learned to believe that "he is not one of the competent people, that school is painful and shameful, and that he is not a 'good boy' to the adult world outside his home." By the time he is sixteen, he is an addicted, tattooed criminal and gang member, all because of unrecognized disabilities at an early age. Because numerous authors have contributed to this book, it presents a wide diversity of useful knowledge. The information flows well despite various authors and topics, and the book is especially useful for readers without a background in helping troubled youth because it is easy to understand. A resource list includes Web sites, organizations, curriculum materials, and books. Source Notes. Further Reading. 1999, Child Welfare League of America, 109p, $12.95 pb. Ages Adult.
