Overview

Youth, Health and Welfare meets the demand for a critical, policy and practice-oriented inter-disciplinary perspective on the changing nature of young people's lives and how this affects their health and wellbeing. This book provides a lively, research-based and critical approach to young people's health and wellbeing in contemporary society, drawing on the latest research from a variety of Australian and international sources. Chapters provide an introduction to current debates and theoretical ideas, an analysis of key health and wellbeing issues, the challenges for health and education professionals and the ways in which health and educational approaches frame youth. The focus throughout is on young people's experiences, priorities and attitudes in relation to risk, wellbeing and health in a changing world.
