`Violence in Children and Adolescents'is a compilation of sensitive and informative writing by experts.' -- Law Society Journal
`This book deals with a topical subject in a sympathetic manner. All the contributors are experienced professionals who are authorities in their own field and their understanding of the behaviour of often very sad young people emerges to make a readable volume which is helpful to students, practitioners and researchers alike. Anyone who is concerned about young people should find something to assist them in working with their behaviours in any one of the chapters. Students will find research data for a variety of essay topics.' -- Labour Campaign for Criminal Justice Campaign
