Preventing Childhood Disorders, Substance Abuse and Delinquency by Ray DeV. Peters

Book Description

'Increasingly in the past few years, there has been much public concern about crime, in particular crimes of violence, and the increase in aggression and anti-social behaviour among adolescents...The theme of this book is prevention and early intervention. It will be of interest to a wide readership...the book provides an excellent review of current thinking and research on prevention. It is full of imaginative initiatives and does not ignore the problems' - The Psychologist Outcome studies have shown that treatment programmes for child and adolescent social and behavioural problems, such as violence and substance abuse, do not work if administered too late. This volume presents the newest research on the effectiveness of prevention and early intervention programmes with children from birth to adolescence. The contributors examine the theory and practice of leading innovative programmes which focus on social skills training, anger coping group work, parent training programmes and life skills training. All designed to intervene before the onset of disorders or to deal effectively with problems when they first appear, many of the programmes also emphasize strengthening family, school and community involvement for successful risk reduction.
