Editorial Reviews

"For a thorough coverage of the research in the field, this book is preferred... Thorough chapter references and index. The final chapter on legal principles is excellent."--CHOICE"This text is recommended, especially for its chapters on motivation, sexuality, and the law."--READINGS"All of the information in this book can be extrapolated to adolescent health care, particularly if applied to evaluative of educational aspects of care. The Adolescent as Decision Maker is, as well, a great resource for researchers because each contributor notes areas where further study is needed.... The book is well organized and well written.... Of most interest to CNMs involved in research or education, some clinicians will find the information to be very useful."--JOURNAL OF NURSE-MIDWIFERY
