Adolescence, Risk and Resilience : Against the Odds Paperback / softback
Edited by John Coleman, Ann Hagell
Part of the Understanding Adolescence series
Adolescence is often portrayed as an age of particular risk.
Adolescents are not only considered a risk to themselves, but also to the rest of society.
As a society, we are nervous of them, and consider them vulnerable, yet the seeds of successful and independent adult life are laid down in adolescence, and they need all the help and support that they can get at a challenging time. Adolescents at Risk: Against the Odds looks in depth at some of the key risks faced by adolescents, and at some of the ways in which they can be alleviated.
The book is structured according to the operational challenges the research informs.
