Overview

Attention is directed to the fact that violence in the lives of girls is unique to the experience of girls and that it behooves us to stop comparing them to boys. As well, that there are known risk factors that are unique to these girls and that interventions need to be gender specific and geared towards the criminogenic needs of the individual in order for treatment to be effective. More than simply the editors, Cummings and Leschied (both teach counseling psychology at the U. of Western Ontario in London, Ontario) are co-authors of seven of the nine essays of this collection. The essays consider various studies on the reasons, behaviors, treatment, prevention, and recommendations for future research on aggression in teenage girls. The studies, which utilize statistics and studies, many made in Canada, are written with social services applications in mind.
