    Authentic Case Studies: Adolescence to Emerging Adulthood provides future educators and practitioners with a comprehensive and diverse collection of case studies that document a variety of challenges faced by at-risk youth. The case studies reflect the lived experiences of hundreds of individuals, relayed in their own voices. Through them, readers learn about issues that affect youth today, as well as issues that have played important roles in developmental trends of the past.

    Topics addressed within the case studies include, but are not limited to, substance abuse and exploration, sexual behavior, bullying and peer victimization, dietary and mental health disorders, depression, ADHD, and a multitude of other behaviors that have proven potentially difficult for youth and emerging adults. Throughout, readers are provided with key questions to help them analyze the cases, determine patterns of behavior, and identify appropriate interventions.

    Authentic Case Studies is a highly valuable and practical collection that prepares those who will educate, work with, and assess at-risk youth to do so with compassion and expertise. The text is ideal for courses in education, human development, social work, counseling, and psychology.
