Following on the heels of the widely-acclaimed, updated edition of Nathan and Gorman's A Guide to Treatments That Work (OUP, 2002), A Call for Treatments and Preventions that Work for Adolescents brings together a distinguished group of psychiatrists and clinical psychologists to provide a cohesive, evidence-based guide to treatments and preventions that work for adolescents with mental disorders. The project, funded by the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylandsin conjunction with the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, seeks to address mental disorders in the teenage years when support is still available from home and school and while behaviour and the brain are still "plastic". Seven commissions established by the Annenberg Foundation pooltheir expertise to address the state of our knowledge on adolescent anxiety, schizophrenia, substance and alcohol abuse, depression and bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and suicide. Individual chapters thoroughly define each disorder, offer empirically-tested treatments, discuss prevention, and suggest a research agenda based on what we know and don't yet know. The volume also incorporates the latest research on positive youth development, which addresses how we can fully prepare youngpeople to be happy and successful throughout their lives rather than focusing simply on ensuring that teenagers are not engaged in risky behaviours. Integrating the work of eminent scholars in both psychology and psychiatry, this work will be an essential volume for academics and practisingclinicians.

Herbert Hendin is medical director of the American Suicide Foundation and professor of psychiatry at New York Medical College. Considered a world-famous authority on suicide, Hendin is against doctor-assisted suicide. In his book Seduced by Death: Doctors, Patients, and Assisted Suicide, revised in March 1998, Hendin offers a persuasive argument against legalizing assisted suicide in the United States. He also shows what can be done to find better options for those who are faced with the decision of ending their lives rather than suffering from terminal illnesses. Other suicide-related books written by Hendin include The Age of Sensation, Black Suicide, The Gospel of Life, and Suicide in America. Hendin is the winner of the Louis I. Dublin Award of the American Association of Suicidology.
