This book offers the reader an account of the development of social and antisocial development in childhood and adolescence. It reviews the effective interventions available to professionals and parents and offers some common intervention methods for problem behaviour. --- from the publisher
"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 ... 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." Stephen Scott, Institute of Psychiatry, London, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Volume 9, No. 2, 2004, pp 92-96
