Riassunto: Work with young people on issues of substance misuse has for too long been based on adult-oriented research and adapted from adult-focused practice. Introducing and assessing the evidence base that is being developed around work with children and young people, Youthoria provides startling and compelling conclusions that revise not only our understanding of problematic young substance users, but also of young people in all contexts of need. The book explains how young people's problematic substance use is not a random occurrence, but is entwined in adolescent development itself. It offers new directions in which to assess young people, in ways that are truly developmentally informed, so as to implement effective prevention and treatment efforts. Youthoria will help anyone working with young people and families, not only to develop a framework for learning and practice that makes sense of the complexity of young people's needs, but to do so in ways which make sense to young people. As a stimulating challenge to academics and practitioners alike, the book will help them: increase their knowledge and range of skills to support young people and their families, across the full spectrum of their needs * map the complexity of young people's substance use to ensure that those who need it receive optimal support * improve outcomes, especially while working with the most vulnerable, marginalized, and excluded among young people. *** "Harris, an independent scholar with years of experience in the field of drug abuse treatment, provides a comprehensive review and analysis of adolescent substance use, associated problems, factors increasing and decreasing the risk of use, and treatment interventions. His perspective on adolescent substance-related issues is refreshing, examining them from within a broader context that includes historical, cultural, social and developmental influences on patterns of use and resulting problems. Highly recommended." - Choice, Vol. 51, No. 03, November 2013╦

Recensione: "The author does a remarkable job in synthesising extensive research findings to provide a comprehensive and coherent framework for understanding and effectively responding to substance use by today's youth.

"The strength of the book lies in:
The breadth and depth of analysis of youth-oriented research which sheds light on the interplay between young people's drug and alcohol consumption, problematic use and the wider cultural, social and developmental factors affecting their decisions and behaviour.
Its fresh and compelling insights into the specific substance abuse trajectories of young people and the implications of these for optimal prevention and treatment interventions.
The way it combines sophisticated theoretical analysis with a strong focus on practice issues, integrating ideas and learning in a way that will enhance the knowledge and range of skills of staff working with young people and families across the spectrum of need.

"Refreshingly, the book ignores policy and political agendas and instead focuses on the natural history of young people's drug and alcohol use as it actually evolves, establishes itself and the recedes in their lives. In this way, the author achieves what he clearly sets out to deliver - a clear, authoritative framework that articulates developmentally-informed interventions which directly address the realities and complexities of young people's lives.

Youthoria is a highly readable and engaging book that provides invaluable insights, strategies and tools for commissioners of services and for staff involved in supporting young people and their families. It will also be of immense help to academics and social work/care students alike." --Professional Social Work

"Harris, an independent scholar with years of experience in the field of drug abuse treatment, provides a comprehensive review and analysis of adolescent substance use, associated problems, factors increasing and decreasing the risk of use, and treatment interventions. His perspective on adolescent substance-related issues is refreshing, examining them from within a broader context that includes historical, cultural, social ad developmental influences on patterns of use and resulting problems... Recognizing that the nature of substance misuse by adolescents differs from that of adults, Harris calls for the use of diagnostic criteria and interventions that reflect the risk factors, paths to problematic use, life consequences, impact of developmental progress, and symptom presentation specific to adolescents. He concludes with a challenge to improve prevention and treatment outcomes of adolescents by applying models informed by current research on developmental processes and practices supported by evidence. Summing up: Highly recommended." --CHOICE (Current reviews for Academic Libraries) www.choicemag.org A publication of College and Research Libraries

"This book is an indispensable reference for anyone working with today's youth. Harris masterfully guides readers through over 900 journal and research articles about research on working with young people who engage in substance use, abuse and dependence. He helpfully creates succinct chapters round the most common questions parents, educators and professionals ask... Based on his research, which includes studies from round the world, Harris addresses gender differences, pharmacology, the effectiveness of abstinence-based programmes, and harm reduction strategies. He dispels many myths... Youthoria is a useful read that can give new insights and perspectives for anyone who works with teens." --Intervene, formerly Addiction Today.
