Adolescence and Health by John Coleman

Book Description

Is adolescent health getting worse? Do adolescents need to take risks to grow and develop? What is a healthy lifestyle for a young person? Adolescence and Health is the first comprehensive text to consider all aspects of young people's health in the context of their lifestyles and recent major social changes, considering questions such as: Is adolescent health getting worse? Do adolescents need to take risks to grow and develop? What is a healthy lifestyle for a young person? Adolescence and Health begins by examining topics such as sexuality, eating disorders, and the use or abuse of substances, and then moves on to wider discussions including the best way to promote health or provide clinical services to a group who are neither fully adult nor children. Following the surge in health initiatives to focus on young people in the last decade, this book provides thought provoking content and a range of teaching and learning aids, to form the most up-to-date textbook for trainee health professionals and others working with adolescents. 'As Minister for Children in Wales, I am delighted to commend this topical and significant book.' - Jane Hutt, Welsh Assembly Government.
