Adolescent Dysfunctional Behavior
Causes, Interventions, and Prevention

Edited by:


October 1995 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
How do problem behaviors develop in adolescents? Why is teen crime and suicide on the rise? Are there reliable ways to prevent or treat these problems? A team of experts from research, clinical, and medical settings finds answers to these questions while exploring adolescent dysfunctional behavior. Divided into three informative parts, this book provides in-depth coverage of topics such as teen defiance and hostility, criminal misconduct, substance abuse, depression, eating disorders, suicide, and mental illness. Concluding with a thoughtful comparison of school-based, home-based, and combined/coordinated treatment strategies, Adolescent Dysfunctional Behavior succeeds in introducing its audience to the many facets and treatments of adolescent problems. Especially useful for researchers and students in developmental psychology, psychology, family studies, sociology, education research, social work, and public health. However, this accessible book provides invaluable information for parents, foster parents, group home facilitators, or anyone who works regularly with adolescents.
