9781853023446: Violence in Children and Adolescents

`Violence in Children and Adolescents' is an exploration of violence both by and against children, its causes and approaches to its amelioration. It is invaluable reading for anyone who works with young people. The contributors comprise an authoritative range of both practitioners and academics, including forensic psychiatrists and forensic psychologists, psychotherapists and criminologists. Together they examine topics such as children who kill; violent young offenders; immigrant children who have been the victims of war; the influence of television; the relationship to the family; and racial and sexual violence.

Violence in society is increasingly prevalent and of great concern to anyone working with children and teenagers. `Violence in Children and Adolescents' offers a broad scope of interpretations and insight which is essential reading for professionals and students alike.

About the Author:

Ved Varma is a retired educational psychologist who has worked with the Institute of Education, the University of London, the Tavistock Clinic and the London Boroughs of Richmond-upon-Thames and Brent. He has published widely in the areas of education, psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy and social work. He is the editor of How and Why Children Hate, How and Why Children Fail. and, with Kedar N. Dwivedi, Meeting the Needs of Ethnic Minority Children (all from Jessica Kingsley Publishers)

Review:

`...in one form or another all of the main theories purporting to explain violent behaviour, together with the available research evidence, are reviewed here...It is an ideal book for trainees in health-care, social service, legal or psychotherapy settings, or for the purpose or fairly quick updating of old or even non-existent knowledge about violence in children and adolescents' (Therapeutic Communities.)

`The diversity of contributions by a range of writers with an evident expertise in their area of specialization makes this a text to be commended to both academics and practitioners working with child and adolescent perpetrators of violence.' (British Journal of Social Work)

`Violence in Children and Adolescents'is a compilation of sensitive and informative writing by experts.' (Law Society Journal)

`This book deals with a topical subject in a sympathetic manner. All the contributors are experienced professionals who are authorities in their own field and their understanding of the behaviour of often very sad young people emerges to make a readable volume which is helpful to students, practitioners and researchers alike. Anyone who is concerned about young people should find something to assist them in working with their behaviours in any one of the chapters. Students will find research data for a variety of essay topics.' (Labour Campaign for Criminal Justice Campaign)
