Mental health problems and disorders among adolescents are an increasingly endemic problem, causing anxiety and distress for young people themselves, challenges for the health care professional, social worker, teachers and parents, and demands on the managed care system. This is the only book of its kind to offer a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to this topical and rapidly developing field.
