"Some of these [books in the PACTS series 2] are quite outstanding guides for practitioners, full of practical steps to take and worldly wisdom as well as good theretical grounding ... there are a couple on behaviours that are less commonly covered in other places, including Avoiding Risky Sex, and Gambling. Its is very welcome to have these issues addressed in such a pragmatic way ... Overall I would recommend that this series is present for anybody working with adolescents, as they provide a very useful guide for trainees to get stuck in with treatment."
