The pace of change in work with these client groups continues and there is a call from busy workers to be kept up-to-date with all the new developments in theory, research and practice. This book offers them signposts to help them refine or extend the range of available intervention options. Calder has brought together an international team of respected authors to consolidate knowledge on a range of topics and to further stimulate debates. Their contributions are organised into themed sections that address theory and research development; engagement with young people; assessment; practice issues; management and treatment options and outcomes. The text builds on Calder's earlier works (Russell House Publishing 1999; 2002) by using the material as building blocks to chart how things have evolved further, been disregarded or replaced by new ideas, or been refined and developed further. As our state of knowledge accelerates, and narrows our ignorance gap, the need to transfer the progress into practice expeditiously becomes necessary. This text acts as a vehicle to achieve this goal.
