Summary
Annotation {u01C2}b The Board on Children, Youth, and Families was created in 1993. Its Committee on Adolescent Health and Development studies issues facing young people and their families using analytic tools from the behavioral, social, and health sciences. Four papers from the Committee's March 2001 workshop, held in Washington, D.C., examine the beliefs underlying adolescents' decisions, present a framework for understanding the vulnerability of adolescents to undesirable outcomes, offer a model for estimating the economic payoffs for different types of policy actions designed to offset adolescent health risks, and discuss adolescents' concerns about their futures and well- being. This work lacks a subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
