Ferrer-Wreder, Laura and Stattin, Hakan and Lorente, Carolyn Cass and Tubman, Johnathan G and Adamson, Lena (2004) Successful prevention and youth development programs: across borders. New York: Kluwer Academic / Plenum Publishers .

There is a widely recognized need to provide clear examples of useful prevention and youth development programs that are evidence-based and grounded in the current knowledge of life span development and cultural processes. The authors of Successful Prevention and Youth Development Programs address this existing need by closely exploring the incidence of problem youth behaviors and scrutinizing the efficacy of existing prevention programs. The volume represents a concerted effort to examine a sample of well-established and promising intervention programs initiated in Europe and America. This review includes interventions specifically designed to promote youth development or to minimize the long-term consequences of problem behaviors from violence and criminality, substance use and abuse, teen pregnancy and hazardous sexual behaviors, and school failure. Academics and professionals in public health social work, psychology, and school counseling will find special interest in this important work
