This volume looks at the reasons behind adolescent violence, and illuminates the earlier disturbances in the life history of the adolescent, which contribute to violent behaviour. The contributors look beyond the "why" of the behaviour and offer solutions on how to handle the situation. The contributors are all experienced practitioners and draw from their extensive experience in the consulting room. The concise and thought-provoking chapters discuss such problems as suicidal and self-destructive behaviours, school-bullying, violence towards the parents and violence while in care. This book is full of insights into the common problem of adolescent violence, and it should be required reading for all concerned with the young adults of today.Part of the Forensic Psychotherapy Monograph Series.
