Whether the term "at-risk" connotates a local school districts problems with youth suicide and school dropout, the correction systems concerns about juvenile delinquency, or the health systems concerns with teen pregnancy, child abuse, and AIDS, the individuals labeled as such need the on-going help of professionals to help them overcome their problems. ..In the McWhirters intriguing new book, the authors show how at-risk individuals can become responsible and productive adults. The book provides up-to-date information and research on the different at-risk categories and puts the categories in a unified and consistent conceptual framework. As the authors focus on the various aspects of at-risk behaviors for the different helping professionals -- especially counselors and teachers -- they present educational, psychological, and counseling interventions for prevention and treatment for each problem area..The book is organized for teaching flexibility: the chapters may be used in sequence, or several different teaching modules can be created using the text. By combining various chapters, instructors may create an overview module, a family module, a school issues and dropout module, a prevention module, four modules based on the at-risk categories: substance use, teen pregnancy, juvenile delinquency, and youth suicide, and four modules based on treatment interventions: refusal and resistance training; an Adlerian/Driekurs model; Glassers Reality Therapy; and crisis intervention.
