Thinking, research and practice in this important area of work all continue to change rapidly. The pressures and expectations on workers and agencies increase. The consequences for everyone who needs to keep up-to-date with how we understand and work with these young people, this book:

  • reports on emerging areas of practice
  • offers contributions from professional disciplines who have recently become involved in this work
  • provides a single source for reference and practice on what is new and important
  • has been brought together by an editor whose three earlier books have been highly acclaimed

This new volume builds on what was reported there. It addresses:

  • research and theory
  • assessment and intervention
  • treatment
  • engagement
  • management and outcomes

It draws on an even wider range of professional disciplines, continues to offer a range of perspectives and - crucially - extends the availability of options for workers.
