Transition to Adulthood: A Resource for Assisting Young People with Emotional or Behavioral Difficulties (Systems of Care for Children's Mental Health)
Passing from adolescence into adulthood is a challenging time for each of us. And these years can be even tougher for young adults with emotional or behavioral difficulties. In this new handbook - from the premier researchers, educators, and practitioners in the field - you'll discover proven methods to help young people move into the world of career-oriented education, work, and independent living. This book emphasizes practices that will enable you to help young people pursue their interests and goals. You'll explore interventions for handling key issues - such as drug and alcohol use, changing peer and family relations, anger and impulse management, crime, and school dropout - in order to facilitate their success across personal and community life. With young adults bringing their own experiences and perspectives to each chapter as co-authors, you'll find this resource both practical and inspiring.
