Adolescence is a period characterized by both increased susceptibility to risks and new-found strength to withstand them. Whilst most young people are well equipped to manage the changes associated with growing up, other maladjusted and marginalized adolescents already have, or are at risk of developing, mental health problems.

Adolescent Mental Health: Prevention and Intervention is a concise and accessible overview of our current knowledge on effective treatment and prevention programs for young people with mental health problems. Whilst addressing some of the most common mental health issues among young people, such as behavioral problems and drug-related difficulties, it also offers a fuller understanding of the evidence-based treatment and prevention programs that are built upon what we know about how these behavioral and emotional problems develop and are sustained.

The volume illustrates contemporary and empirically supported interventions and prevention efforts through a series of case studies. It has been fully updated in line with the latest NICE and DSM-V guidelines, and now includes an added chapter on implementation, and what factors facilitate implementation processes of intervention efforts.

Adolescent Mental Health: Prevention and Intervention will be essential reading for students and practitioners in the fields of child welfare and mental health services, and any professional working with adolescents at risk of developing mental health problems.

This up-to-date compendium is rich with information that clearly defines key principles and practices relevant to the theory and understanding of adolescent development in the 21st century. The authors present a balanced approach to alternative perspectives of theory and intervention, making Adolescent Mental Health: Prevention and Intervention a valuable resource for educators and practitioners. Case studies clarify concepts and illustrate procedures. Marion S. Forgatch, PhD, Senior Research Scientist Emerita, Oregon Social Learning Center, USA

It is rare to find a concise summary of the literature on adolescent mental health that also is complete and readable. Ogden and Hagen, well known for their cutting edge research, have produced a gem, with up to the minute research described in the context of key lessons from history and the latest NICE and DSM-V guidelines. This book is required reading for serious students of the field and will serve as the foundation for meaningful and impactful practice and research in the coming decades. Dean L. Fixsen, Implementation Scientist, University of North Carolina, USA
