The successes, failures, obstacles and possibilities for promoting healthier development and well-being among children around the world are considered in this volume. The many physical and psychological problems, both common and unique, that face young people are considered. Contributors examine sources of stress such as inadequate parenting, war and poverty; explore such topics as social policies, children's rights, and prevention and reduction of conduct disorders; and consider possible interventions. The suffering created by the growing division between the worlds of the wealthy and of the poverty-stricken is put into sharp perspective.
