about

In Psychosocial Disturbances in Young People: Challenges for Prevention, top experts provide an overview of important areas in adolescence, ranging from delinquency to depression, addressing such key questions as whether or not problems have multiple causes and what the influences of individual, family and societal factors are in the rise of problems. They also consider to what extent there are similarities or differences in the presentation and cause of these problems in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood and whether there are continuities between life periods. It will be of importance to psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, educators, criminologists, and policymakers.
