Handbook of adolescent behavioral problems : evidence-based approaches to prevention and treatment by Thomas P Gullotta( )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we enter the new millennium, promoting sound mental health and positive behavior of adolescents has undeniably taken on greater significance than ever before. To that end, more and more research is confirming what many have suspected for years: environment and community surroundings have a major affect on an adolescents well-being and overall mental health. And because no single causal agent triggers teenage pathology and no one-size-fits-all treatment is available the Handbook of Adolescent Behavior Problems offers a comprehensive and integrative biopsychosocial approach to effective practice. This volume examines not only the psychological and genetic factors underlying dysfunction, it also explores the critical roles that family members, peers, and the larger community play in an adolescents life. It offers current interdisciplinary perspectives on adolescent development, both functional and pathological, and provides coverage that is clear, accessible, and practical on such topics as: - Major disorders, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, ADHD, PTSD, developmental delays, and conduct disorders. - Behavior problems, such as substance abuse, sexual offenses, teen pregnancy, school failure, gambling, and gang violence. - Best practices, reviewing what works (i.e., interventions that have been rigorously validated), what might work (i.e., those in need of further study), and what doesn't work. - Residential interventions as well as community treatment. - Risk and resiliency factors. - Ongoing and emerging pharmaceutical issues. Each chapter focuses on a specific behavior or disorder and is formatted to help readers quickly locate needed information. The Handbook of Adolescent Behavior Problems provides a solid foundation for understanding the adolescent experience and the influence of the family and community as well as much-needed information on the development of evidence-based practices. --Publisher

"Asperger Syndrome: A Guide for Professionals and Families integrates the latest evidence-based research from leading scholars; and examples from those working with this population in nonuniversity settings, with personal practical advice from a mother whose adolescent has Asperger Syndrome, and from a young man who has Asperger syndrome." "Asperger Syndrome is a life-long condition that requires long-term planning, treatment, and medical intervention. Early diagnosis and treatment may lead to minimalizing the impact of the Asperger Syndrome at each developmental stage. Asperger Syndrome: A Guide for Professionals and Families provides effective perspective on each type of intervention, and assists those making key decisions at critical developmental and educational times in the life of the Asperger Syndrome person. The authors rely on the most current research evidence and clinical experience to provide a realistic appraisal of the most significant aspects of Asperger Syndrome."--Jacket

10 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adolescent identity formation( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does identity influence the way adolescents make decisions and cope with stressors? What processes enable the minority adolescent to integrate ethnic identity with other identities into a "meta-identity"? Rooted in the theoretical work of Erikson and Blos, an international team of scholars explores the processes of identity formation, social and behavioral outcomes and management, social contextual factors, and issues of alternative conceptualizations and measurement. Opening with James Marcia's identity status paradigm, the book includes many exciting discussions, including women's identity and Erikson's notions of inner space, Grotevant's process model and how adoptive identity might be studied, the Groningen identity Development Scale, the question of a unitary self, a multidimensional approach to ethnic identity, how cognitive factors intervene in the process of identity formation, and the influence of cognitive identity styles with the ways in which adolescents cope with stress. Students, researchers, and practitioners interested in the latest work on adolescent identity development and its impact on solving adolescents' problems will find this volume a thought-provoking addition to their studies."--Jacket

Depression in Latinos : assessment, treatment, and prevention by Thomas P Gullotta( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depression ranks as a leading mental health problem among Hispanic immigrants and their US-born children. And a wide array of issues - starting with the widespread stereotype of the "illegal immigrant"--Makes the Latino experience of this condition differ from that of any other group. Depression in Latinos consolidates the conceptual, diagnostic, and clinical knowledge base on this salient topic, providing coverage from prevalence to prevention, from efficient screening to effective interventions. In this concise yet comprehensive volume, leading clinicians, researchers, and academics offer extensive research and clinical findings, literature reviews (e.g., an in-depth chapter on the Mexican American Prevalence and Services Survey), and insights gathered from first-hand experience in clinical practice. Perceptive information is offered on the most urgent and complex issues on depression in this diverse and dynamic population, including: (1) the impact language, culture, and societal factors have on depression and its diagnosis; (2) the most relevant assessment instruments; (3) how depression manifests among Latino children, youth, and seniors as well as in Latinas; (4) the relationship between depression and substance abuse; (5) the most effective evidence-based treatment methods; and (6) the efficacy of interventions for depression at the community level
Physical activity across the lifespan : prevention and treatment for health and well-being by Aleta L Meyer( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The statistics are disturbing: steadily rising numbers of sedentary overweight children and obese teens, and a generation looking at a shorter life expectancy than their parents'. But while it may be obvious that physical fitness benefits both the mind and body, a growing research base is supplying evidence of why this is so, and how these benefits may be reproduced in greater numbers. Physical Activity Across the Lifespan makes a clear, scientific case for exercise, sports, and an active lifestyle in preventing illness and establishing lifetime health habits at both the individual and the population levels. The book focuses on key aspects of physical/mental well-being--weight, mood, and self-regulation--and the role of physical activity in public health and school-based interventions targeting these areas. Contributors review definitional and measurement issues salient to understanding what physical activity is, to analyzing benefits of participation, and to implementing effective interventions. Also addressed are limitations of current research, steps needed to continue building the field, and emerging therapeutic possibilities for activity, such as the role of rough and tumble play in preventing ADHD. Included in the coverage: Physical activity, cognition, and school performance. The influence of social and built environments on physical activity in middle-aged and older adults. Preventing and treating obesity through physical activity. Physical activity in preventing drug use and treating chemical dependence. Antidepressant properties of physical activity. Schools as a foundation for physical activity and an active lifestyle. Physical activity as an adjunct or booster to existing interventions. Physical Activity Across the Lifespan is an innovative text for researchers and practitioners in various disciplines including health promotion/disease prevention, child and school psychology, education, health psychology, and public health, as well as program developers and policymakers in these areas

A blueprint for promoting academic and social competence in after-school programs by Thomas P Gullotta( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"School activities alone are not always sufficient to ensure children's academic progress or socio-emotional development and well-being. And the time when many children typically have the least adult supervision - immediately after school - is also the time that they are at the highest risk to act as perpetrators or become victims of antisocial behavior." "Throughout A Blueprint for Promoting Academic and Social Competence in After-School Programs, which focuses on children in grades 1 through 6, noted experts identify the best practices of effective programs and pinpoint methods for enhancing school-based skills and making them portable to home and neighborhood settings." "This important book will find an appreciative, ready audience among the program directors who design after-school curricula, the educators who implement them, the mental health and social work professionals who help staff them, and the current crop of graduate students who will create the next generation of programs."--book jacket
Handbook of childhood behavioral issues : evidence-based approaches to prevention and treatment by Thomas P Gullotta( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent years have seen increasing interest in the mental health field in fostering the positive behavior and healthy mental state of children. As the Handbook of Childhood Behavioral Issues indicates, however, the causes of childhood behavioral, physical, and mental health problems are multi-dimensional and cannot be treated with a uniform approach. Rather than focus solely on theory, this book offers evidence of effective interventions as well as extensive bio-psychosocial methods of preventative practices. The combination of research that is included confirms the impact that environment has on children and offers a new approach to dealing with physical and mental health and behavioral issues in children. This volume is broken down into chapters that concentrate on a specific behavior or disorder, which not only makes the information comprehensible but also allows for in-depth coverage of a particular issue. In addition to considering the genetic, and psychological factors that trigger childhood mental health problems, the handbook also investigates the significant impact that family members and the surrounding community have on a child's life
