This text provides the conceptual and practical information on key issues and problems that students need to prepare effectively for work with at-risk youth. The authors discuss the latest prevention and intervention techniques that will help future and current professionals perform their jobs successfully and improve the lives of young people at risk. New content discusses such new approaches as the flipped classroom and mindfulness approaches; expanded content covers LGBTQI youth, youth with disabilities, immigrant youth, and incarcerated youth, among other topics. The accompanying Instructors Manual (IM) and CourseMate provide ideas for group and individual projects, role-plays and practice exercises, journaling, discussion board postings, and reading and writing assignments. The IM also includes quiz items, reflection questions, You Tube/TEDTalks links, PowerPoint slides to aid in teaching the class, and material on legal and ethical issues formerly presented in the text.
