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.

Book Description:

Since the time of the Second World War, there has been a marked rise in all sorts of psychosocial problems in young people-- crime, suicidal behavior, alcohol and drug abuse, depression and eating disorders. The rise has been striking because during this same time period, the physical health of people and their living conditions has improved in most developed countries. Why have psychosocial disorders in adolescents increased and what can be done to prevent the disorders or at least to reduce their adverse impact? 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 these key questions: To what extent is the problem a single entity as compared with diverse entities? What are the respective influences of individual, family, and societal factors in the etiology of such problems? To what extent are there similarities or differences in the presentation and cause of these problems in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood? To what extent are there continuities between childhood and adulthood, and what are the risk factors and protective factors? The contributors examine ways that problems might be prevented via schools, youth organizations, or mechanisms for coping with stress. The volume successfully integrates various perspectives, with a summary chapter framing the issue of psychosocial problems in adolescence.

Review:

"Michael Rutter has done a superb job of bringing together internationally recognised experts...The alarming rise in psychosocial problems and harmful conditions make this a valuable volume for all who work with young people." The Lancet
