Here is a comprehensive review of adolescent substance abuse issues and an expansive, empirically based curriculum for school-based programs to teach adolescents about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. The abuse of alcohol and other drugs among young people is a problem of alarming scope and gravity. Adolescent Substance Abuse explores the multiple forces which impact adolescents and can push them toward drug and alcohol abuse. Adolescent Substance Abuse proposes means by which to effect macro-level change in societal norms and values regarding substance abuse. The authors describes in detail an effective means of teaching adolescents about drugs and alcohol using an empirically based teaching method called Teams-Games-Tournaments (TGT). TGT was developed through extensive research on games used as teaching devices. It uses small groups as classroom work units and capitalizes on peer influence by using peers as teachers and supporters. The book explains an effective curriculum which utilizes the TGT approach and provides a program for parents. The curriculum is unique in that it is anchored in empirical data and delivered via adolescent peer groups. Adolescent Substance Abuse addresses other issues pertinent to the reduction of adolescent substance abuse by exploring subsystems of change, including school and peer group environments, home and family, the media, community movements, and business and industry. The book is a great source of innovative ideas for beginning and expert counselors, social workers, mental health professionals, school psychologists, and others who want to prevent adolescent abuse of drugs and alcohol.

Until recently, scant consideration was given to the impact of learning and attention disorders throughout the lifespan. Fortunately, the rising tide of popular concern, coupled with recent federal regulations regarding disabled adults, has fueled new research into these areas. As a consequence, there is now little doubt that LD and ADHD often persist throughout a person's life and can pose serious personal, social, vocational, and emotional impediments. It is also clear that many of the concepts and strategies used in assessing and treating children with these problems do not apply to adults. Written by one of North America's leading authorities in the field of attention and learning disorders, this book provides researchers and practitioners with the first comprehensive review of the impact of attention and learning disorders on adults. Just as important, it arms them with practical guidelines for the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of these disorders. In Part I, Dr. Goldstein explores the relationship between LD, ADHD, and various psychiatric disorders and traces their course and outcome in late adolescence. He compares and contrasts leading theories and conceptual models of LD and ADHD and reviews the research concerning the academic, vocational, personal, and psychiatric status of adults with histories of LD and ADHD. He then introduces a multidisciplinary model for evaluating the academic, psychological, neuropsychological, and emotional status of adults with histories of learning disabilities. In Part II, Dr. Goldstein and other well-known authors critically assess current treatment and support strategies. Among topics covered in-depth are medical and nonmedical interventions, the latest drug therapies, contemporary vocational programs for individuals with histories of attention and learning disorders, college programs and services available to attention and learning disabled adults, and the legal rights of attention and learning disabled adults. Managing Attention and Learning Disorders in Late Adolescence and Adulthood is a valuable resource for clinical psychologists, counselors, social workers, and all other mental health professionals.

This book presents an in-depth look at evidence-based programs for training parents of children with behavior problems. Authors Shriver and Allen review the empirical support for four major programs, as well as some more popular programs that lack strong empirical support. Throughout this review they teach readers how to identify the best research in parent training, how to prepare for parent training sessions, and finally show how to translate this research into everyday practice.Parents usually are the most influential people in a child's life. So when child problems like noncompliance, hyperactivity, sleep problems, feeding problems, toileting problems, academic problems, and adolescent - parent conflict arise it is important for parents to take on the primary role in their resolution. This book explains what parents are taught when collaborating with a psychologist or counselor and how they are taught effectively.Practitioners, whether they are experienced, new to parent training, or students of the field, will find this book to be a valuable resource for taking interventions developed under tightly controlled research conditions and adapting them to the conditions of day-to-day practice, where resources are more limited and presenting problems are often more complex.
