This work brings together the results of studies of child services from diverse countries and cultures and covers a broad array of topical issues and social work interventions, including adolescent emotional health, children of substance abusers, childhood depression and teenage suicide, children's weight and physical activity, language development in autistic children, and much more. Chapters include a survey of the number of children living with substance-abusing parents in the UK, a study which helped identify several ways in which schools address adolescent emotional health issues, a review of a program that supports parents of young people with suicidal behavior, an examination of the role that child protective services prevention efforts play in delinquency prevention and intervention, and more.
