Nurturing an Endangered Generation: Empowering Youth with Critical Social, Emotional, and Cognitive Skills.
Thompson, Rosemary A.
This book outlines specific treatment intervention and prevention strategies that address the full spectrum of dysfunctional behavior. It introduces structured intervention strategies for school and community collaboration with an emphasis on remediation and treatment. Educators and helping professionals will find counseling strategies and psychoeducational techniques that focus on primary prevention. These primary prevention strategies are supported by an understanding of critical, social, and cognitive skills. Each chapter introduces the latest demographic data and the factors that make children and adolescents vulnerable to self-defeating or self-destructive behaviors, and then counteracts these factors with structured intervention and prevention initiatives. "Manifestations of Behavior and Related Skills," Part II, comprises the main portion of the book and covers the following topics: alcohol and other drug abuse; unintended pregnancy and high-risk sexual activity; loss, depression, and suicide; conflicted youth, delinquency, and violence; alienation, underachievement, and dropping out; and isolation, victimization, and abuse. An index is provided. (Contains an extensive reference list.) (MKA)
