Child & Youth Services is a unique journal devoted exclusively to the development and treatment of children and adolescents! The journal covers a variety of relevant topics, including current concerns, topics of long-range importance, and concepts that can generally enrich youth services. The valuable contributions you'll find in Child & Youth Services will further the academic literature on the subject and provide practical applications and interventions for day-to-day youth contact at home, in school, or in other environments. Child & Youth Services provides a forum for both scholars and youth service providers. Each issue, with its own unique thematic approach, provides in-depth coverage of a particular area of interest in the field. As such, the journal provides text material for use in relevant courses where such a resource is not otherwise readily available. In practice, Child & Youth Services is widely used to update those already working in the areas covered, and to illuminate new perspectives for colleagues throughout the field.
