Adolescence: Growing Up in America Today
Adolescence: Growing Up in America Today is a follow-up to Joy Dryfoos' landmark study, Adolescents at Risk. The new volume takes a close look at the lives of young people, identifies their problems, and addresses solutions based on state-of-the-art prevention and treatment. Dryfoos and Barkin examine major aspects of adolescent life -- sex, violence, drugs, health, mental health, education, and quality of life. Reviewing successful prevention programs and policy studies, they demonstrate that we know what to do to prevent high risk-behaviors and that there are many similarities across domains.
