Synopsis

Handbook of Youth Prevention Science by Beth Doll

The Handbook of Youth Prevention Science describes current research and practice in mental health preventive interventions for youth. Traditional prevention research focused on preventing specific disorders, e.g. substance abuse, conduct disorders, or criminality. This produced silos of isolated knowledge about the prevention of individual disorders without acknowledging the overlapping goals, strategies, and impacts of prevention programs. This Handbook reflects current research and practice by organizing prevention science around comprehensive systems that reach across all disorders and all institutions within a community. Throughout the book, preventive interventions are seen as complementary components of effective mental health programs, not as replacements for therapeutic interventions. This book is suitable for researchers, instructors and graduate students in the child and adolescent mental health professions: school psychology, school counseling, special education, school social work, child clinical psychology and the libraries serving them. It is also suitable for graduate course work in these fields.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.
