Using a risk and resilience orientation, Intervention with Children and Adolescents distills evidence-based studies into practice guidelines for designing and implementing interventions across a wide range of social and health problems in childhood and adolescence. Leading scholars from nearly two dozen fields of practice share their wisdom as they critically review literatures in child maltreatment, youth violence, drug abuse, school dropout, pregnancy, serious mental disorders, gang involvement, and other areas of practice. This book is distinguished by detailed interdisciplinary perspective reviews on the impact of culture, gender, sexual orientation, and poverty on child development and developmental pyschopathology. This is a path-finding book for practitioners, students, parents, and scholars. It is compelling reading on how we can change systems and services to make positive changes in child outcomes. Intervention is grounded in the latest data on prevalence, theories, empirical evidence on intervention, factors/conditions that protect and/or increase risk for negative outcomes, and social/cultural factors unique to various racial and ethnic groups. Case illustrations, additional reading lists, charts/tables on various interventions, and practice guidelines set this book apart from other literature in this area.

The result is an essential A-to-Z reference that charts the full range of theoretical approaches available to social workers, regardless of their setting or specialty.
