Large numbers of America's children are damaged by substance abuse, teen pregnancy, and homelessness and a lack of health care. Yet the public's interest in preventive programmes is at an all time low. Drawing on their behind-the-scenes experience as Congressional Fellows, the authors of this book make a case for well-designed, economical prevention programmes. They discuss how family dynamics affect parenting; genetic, pre- and perinatal, and environmental risk factors affecting children; model intervention programmes, including the Preschool Mental Health Project; special issues for adolescents; how positive and negative outcomes are transmitted across generations; and the 1990s' era of social policy and its denial of families' needs today.
