This timely book addresses one of the greatest social, family, and community concerns of today--children and youth who are at-risk for a variety of problem behaviors. Whether the term "at risk" is associated with a local school district's problems, with child and adolescent suicide, violence, or school dropout, with the correction system's concerns about gangs or juvenile delinquency, or public health concerns of teen pregnancy, child abuse, AIDS and STDs, and drug and alcohol use, individuals considered "at risk" need the ongoing attention of professionals across many disciplines. To help prepare students for work with at-risk youth, this book provides conceptual and practical information on key issues and problems. Prevention and intervention techniques are described in the book to help future and current professionals perform their jobs successfully and improve the lives of young people at risk.
