Adolescent Gangs: Old Issues, New Approaches

Full Description:   

Adolescent Gangs: Old Issues, New Approaches offers a collection of chapters on how to deal with gangs effectively. The book is divided into three sections, each devoted to a type of setting in which services are provided to gang-affiliated adolescents and their families: community-based interventions, specialized agency-based interventions, and mental health interventions. Adolescent Gangs moves beyond the usual position of describing gangs and gang members as social misfits. Rather, the book operates from the basic belief that gang members are normal people - often participating in abnormal behavior - in search of a place for themselves in the communities in which they live. The editor has recruited leading experts in a variety of disciplines to examine new and creative ways of thinking about gangs and how to respond to them.
