Substance abuse has been on the rise and reached new statistical heights in the past decade. Its prevalence in children and adolescents is more alarming and a topic of concern for all health professionals, besides their own families and social workers. Most forms of substance abuse involve adverse effects, involving typical oral manifestations. As dentists, these oral signs and symptoms could help diagnose a developing habit or dependence caused by illicit drug use. This literature review aims to comprehensively throw light upon the various aspects of substance abuse in young children and adolescents.
As each child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is unique, so are their individual strengths and challenges in communicating and interacting with the world around them. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs), working together with parents, teachers, and other health and education professionals, have a critical role in supporting these children’s spoken and written communication development. The research findings discussed in this new publication will help to improve effective assessment and intervention practices. It also provides ideas for continued research efforts to support children and adolescents with ASD to succeed and achieve their aspirations. This special issue stems from research and discussions presented at the conference of the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics (IALP) in Dublin, Ireland, in August 2016. The Child Language Committee of the IALP is honored to dedicate it to Dr. Carol Westby, consultant for Bilingual Multicultural Services in Albuquerque, NM, USA, and affiliated professor at the Brigham Young University in Provo, UT, USA.
Antisocial behavior in children and adolescents, is a greater challenge for parents, unspeakable concern for families and communities, troubling individuals for professionals in law enforcement and teachers or mental heath professionals all together. Although, these kids have been called sociopathic-psychopaths, serial killers, young offenders, juvenile delinquents, little evils, young devils, monsters, and other names in the book, do we understand why these kids who were born with normal minds like any other normal humans, turn out to be Kids With Criminal Minds?. Why overrepresentation of Aboriginal young offenders in Canadian youth detention centers? This book is the answer to these questions and other related questions pertaining to children and adolescents involved with criminal justice or those kids with history of "run-in" with law enforcement. This book is result of an evidence based systematic literature review in psychiatry, and clinical experience of a decade long work and extensive interactions with Young Offenders population and their families, mainly in North Central region of Canada(Saskatchewan/Prairie).

This forward-thinking reference spotlights an expansive and inclusive community model for youth alcohol prevention as opposed to traditional individual and school-based group approaches. Focusing on a long-term intervention in a Southwestern border town, it documents the development of critical consciousness in an affected community, and emphasizes young people as crucial drivers of change in their environment. The book’s Community Readiness Model provides vital context for successful coalition building between youth, families, and community entities (e.g., schools, civic leaders, police) in reducing alcohol risk factors and promoting healthier choices. Given the severity and prevalence of youth alcohol use, this case study offers a viable blueprint for large-scale engagement in prevention. Among the featured topics: Integrating research into prevention strategies using participatory action research. Breaking down silos between community-based organizations: coalition development. Adult perspectives on nurturing youth leadership and coalition participation. Youth perspectives on youth power as the source of community development. Coalition as conclusion: tips on creating a functioning coalition. Community transformational resilience for adolescent alcohol prevention. Youth-Community Partnerships for Adolescent Alcohol Prevention is both practical and inspiring reading for researchers and other mental health professionals in psychology, social work, and public health who work with adolescents, communities, and civic engagement.
