Section two has one chapter each on the aforementioned addictions, discussing for each the definition, epidemiology, risk factors, co-morbidity, course and outcome, and prevention and intervention. Section three discusses the assessment and treatment of co-morbid conditions in greater detail as well as the social and political implications of adolescent addictions. Intended to be of practical use to clinicians treating adolescent addiction, the book contains a wealth of information that will be of use to the researcher as well. Contributors to the book represent the US, Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and Australia. About the Editor: Cecilia A.

The Oxford Handbook of Adolescent Substance Abuse Book Excerpt:

Adolescent substance abuse is the nation's #1 public health problem. It originates out of a developmental era where experimentation with the world is increasingly taking place, and where major changes in physical self and social relationships are taking place. These changes cannot be understood by any one discipline nor can they be described by focusing only on the behavioral and social problems of this age period, the characteristics of normal development, or the pharmacology and addictive potential of specific drugs. They require knowledge of the brain's systems of reward and control, genetics, psychopharmacology, personality, child development, psychopathology, family dynamics, peer group relationships, culture, social policy, and more. Drawing on the expertise of the leading researchers in this field, this Handbook provides the most comprehensive summarization of current knowledge about adolescent substance abuse. The Handbook is organized into eight sections covering the literature on the developmental context of this life period, the epidemiology of adolescent use and abuse, similarities and differences in use, addictive potential, and consequences of use for different drugs; etiology and course as characterized at different levels of mechanistic analysis ranging from the genetic and neural to the behavioural and social. Two sections cover the clinical ramifications of abuse, and prevention and intervention strategies to most effectively deal with these problems. The Handbook's last section addresses the role of social policy in framing the problem, in addressing it, and explores its potential role in alleviating it.

Adolescent Psychiatry V 30 Book Excerpt:

The period of adolescence can be a time of great creativity, as new intellectual capacities emerge, and as the individual adolescent attempts to make sense out of inner and outer experience. Volume 30 of Adolescent Psychiatry addresses the ways in which adolescent experience is transmuted into creative artistic production, as well as focuses on the relationship between creativity and psychopathology, and treatment for troubled adolescents. With the links between adolescence and creativity in mind, the volume opens with an in-depth examination of a young boy’s creation of his own story of Polyphemus. This is followed by a fresh look at the adolescent influences behind Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt. The next ten chapters comprise a special section devoted to creative solutions to some of the most challenging facing adolescent psychiatry. Here, numerous relevant studies are presented and conclusions drawn, as a whole addressing topics such as: an innovative residential treatment program for gifted adolescents who have failed academically and rejected previous attempts at treatment; motivational interviewing, a technique employed in the effort to find common ground between the therapist and patient; the importance of understanding adolescent sexuality and how to approach the topic with patients in an appropriate manner; and a discussion of the registration, commitment, and assessment of juvenile sex offenders. A final section investigates problematic examples of reactive attachment disorder, as well as treatment-refractory adolescent schizophrenia – when the medication doesn’t work. Volume 30 of Adolescent Psychiatry continues the wide-ranging scholarship and analytic sensibility that has been the hallmark of the series. Literary and artistic criticism reside comfortably between empirical research and case studies, all working together to broaden the horizon of research and application of psychiatric technique and theory for adolescence.

Substance Use among Children and Adolescents provides the most complete picture yet of important theoretical, empirical, and clinical trends in substance exposure and use and their impact upon the young. Ann Marie and Louis Pagliaro have assembled a vast body of information in a format that is easy to apply in clinical practice. Drawing upon their own clinical experiences and those of other experts from a variety of disciplines, the authors present practical advice and guidance on assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

Screening and Assessing Adolescents for Substance Use Disorders Book Excerpt:

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS. In recognition of the importance of developing reliable, valid, and clinically useful instruments as well as procedures for screening adolescents for substance use disorders, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) in 1992 convened a Panel of experienced researchers and clinicians who work with troubled youths and their families. A year later, CSAT convened another Panel that examined substance use disorder treatment for adolescents and outlined state-of-the-art treatment guidelines. Two Treatment Improvement Protocols (TIPs 3 and 4) were developed from these efforts. Given the continued significance of assessment and treatment of adolescents' substance use, CSAT convened another Panel in 1997 to update both of the earlier TIPs. This TIP should be viewed as a companion volume to TIP 32, Treatment of Adolescents With Substance Use Disorders (CSAT, 1999), which updates TIP 4. The original Panel on adolescent substance use screening and assessment had two goals. The first was to discuss the problems of adolescent substance use disorders from the viewpoints of the Panel Members, who come from a wide spectrum of backgrounds and specialty areas. The emphasis was on practical clinical procedures to help treatment providers improve care. A second goal for the Panel was to review, from a practical perspective, available instruments, procedures, and measures for assessing adolescent substance use in various settings, including rehabilitation, that could be used easily by clinicians and other workers in the field. The Revision Panel preserved the original goals but also incorporated new research, updated summaries of previously listed instruments, and added recently developed tools. This TIP incorporates the deliberations of the 1992 Consensus Panel and the 1997 Revision Panel. It concentrates on the strategies, procedures, and instruments that are appropriate for the initial detection of substance-using adolescents, the comprehensive assessment of their problems, and subsequent treatment planning. Although the TIP summarizes many instruments, it does not endorse any screening or assessment tools. The purposes of the TIP are several: (1) To provide general guidelines for evaluating, developing, and administering screenings and assessment instruments and processes for those who screen and assess young people for substance use disorders (2) To inform a wide range of people whose work brings them in contact with adolescents in problem situations (e.g., teachers, guidance counselors, school nurses, police probation officers, coaches, and family service workers) about the processes, methods, and tools available to screen for potential substance use problems in adolescents (3) To discuss strategies and accepted techniques that can be used by treatment personnel to detect related problems in the adolescent's life, including problems with family and peers, and psychiatric issues, and to see that these problems are dealt with during the primary intervention for a substance use disorder (4) To outline a screening and assessment system designed to identify those youths with potential substance use problems in various settings Adolescents differ from adults physiologically and emotionally and are covered by different laws and social services. This revised TIP is designed to help juvenile justice, health and human service, and substance use disorder treatment personnel better identify, screen, and assess people 11 to 21 years old who may be experiencing substance-related problems. The TIP details warning signs of substance use disorders among adolescents, when to screen, when to assess, what domains besides substance use to assess, and how to involve the family and other collaterals. Also covered are the legal issues of screening and assessing teenagers, including confidentiality, duty to warn, and how to communicate with other agencies. The TIP also includes a chapter specifically for those working in the juvenile justice system who want to improve their screening and assessment procedures. Appendix A lists the citations referred to throughout this TIP and relevant to the instrument summaries. Appendix B provides up-to-date summaries of instruments relevant for screening and comprehensively assessing substance-abusing adolescents. Appendix C contains excerpts from "Drug Testing of Juvenile Detainees," a publication prepared by the American Correctional Association and the Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc., under a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.
