8 Dec 2008
Youth, Health and Welfare provides a critical, policy and practice-orientated inter-disciplinary perspective on the changing nature of young people's lives, and its impact on their health and wellbeing. The book draws on the latest research from a variety of Australian and international sources, to introduce current debates and theoretical ideas, analyse key health and wellbeing issues, examine the challenges for health and education professionals and review the ways in which health and educational approaches impact on youth. The focus throughout is on young people's experiences, priorities and attitudes in relation to risk, wellbeing and health in a changing world.
