Description: Adolescents (a high-risk health group) are growing as a percentage of the populations. This text offers an action-oriented epidemiologic approach to understanding the risk factors affecting adolescent health, and what can be done in response. Drawing on the leading experts in the field, this reference provides a survey and assessment of adolescent health risk behaviors, such as smoking, violence, teen pregnancy, and AIDS. Also described are trends and changes in risk behaviors over time; important theoretical models for developing interventions; prevention strategies for each risk behavior; and effective treatment modalities.
