Treating and Preventing Adolescent Mental Health Disorders: What We Know And What We Don't Know, A Research Agenda For Improving The Mental Health Of Our Youth

Beschreibung

Following on the heels of the widely acclaimed A Guide to Treatments That Work (OUP, 2002) by Nathan and Gorman, Treating and Preventing Adolescent Mental Health Disorders brings together a distinguished group of psychiatrists and clinical psychologists to provide a groundbreaking,
evidence-based survey of treatments and preventions for adolescents with mental health disorders.
The book, the very first to disseminate the findings of the Adolescent Mental Health Initiative sponsored by the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands and the Annenberg Public Policy Center (APPC) of the University of Pennsylvania, addresses the current state of our knowledge about various
mental health disorders in the teenage years, a developmental period when behavior and the brain are still "plastic." Here, six commissions established by the Sunnylands Trust and APPC pool their expertise on adolescent anxiety, schizophrenia, substance use disorders, depression and bipolar
disorders, eating disorders, and suicide in sections that thoroughly define each disorder, outline and assess available treatments, discuss prevention strategies, and suggest a research agenda based on what we know and don't yet know about these various conditions.
As a meaningful counterpoint to its primary focus on mental illness, the volume also incorporates the latest research from a seventh commission-on positive youth development--which addresses how we can fully prepare young people to be happy and successful throughout their lives. Concluding chapters
discuss other critical issues of particular relevance: the stigma of mental illness, the role of primary-care doctors and school-based mental healthprofessionals in the detection and treatment of adolescent mental health problems, and the research, policy, and practice context for the delivery of
evidence-based treatments. Integrating the work of eminent scholars in both psychology and psychiatry, this work will be an essential
