Part 1 presents information on at-risk population identification, causal factors of problematic behaviors, and promotion of resiliency in youth. Part 2 examines the development of at-risk behaviors relating to dysfunctional family dynamics, low self-esteem, depression, mood disorders, and stress and trauma. Part 3 explores the behaviors most often identified as placing youth at risk, such as eating disorders, suicidal preoccupation, teen sexuality, gang membership, school violence, substance abuse, homelessness, school dropout, and bullying, as well as the unique strengths of and stressors faced by multiracial and LGBTQ youth. Case studies illustrate prevention ef­forts from individual, family, school, and community perspectives, and text sidebars create greater reader self-awareness and en­hance the understanding of the concepts, skills, and applications of the chapter material.

Dawn Henderson Resilience and social connectedness among at-risk youth


Using a transformative framework, suspension practices are examined from an ecological context. Current practices in the United States demonstrate that African American and Hispanic/Latino males are disproportionately suspended at higher rates than Caucasian students--often perpetuating a pipeline from school to prison. Guided by a participatory action research model, this study employs a mixed methods design to examine resilience and social connectedness among youth in an alternative to suspension program. Additionally, relationships at the teacher and parent level are explored to offer additional support on the role of alternatives to suspension. Findings suggest that interventions that use a strength-based approach with youth and focus on positive relationships with adults and peers is highly relevant to the perceived success of at-risk youth.

Frank Mbaaga Perceived Sexual HIV Risks and Prevention


HIV/AIDS, a disease with neither cure nor vaccine, is a devastating pandemic. About 40 million people are infected, 4.1 million are infected annually, and 800,000 die from AIDS-related deaths each year. In developing countries, it is transmitted mainly heterosexually. Infection can be reduced through abstinence, faithfulness, and use of condoms. People must be knowledgeable about the disease and perceive that they are at risk of infection. This study investigated construction of sexual risk for HIV and behavioural change among youth in Masaka and Kampala districts in Uganda. The research studied perceived risk of youth in sexual activities, or activities which lead to sex and behaviour which youth adopt to reduce the risk. The findings have ample implications and applications for policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and scholars engaged in theoretical endeavours.

Abdelhalim Boussabaine Risk Pricing Strategies for Public-Private Partnership Projects


The complexity of public-private partnership project procurement requires an effective process for pricing, managing and appropriate allocation of risks. The level at which risk is priced and the magnitude of risks transferred to the private sector will have a significant impact on the cost of the PPP deals as well as on the value for money analysis and on the section of the optimum investment options. The construction industry tends to concentrate on the effectiveness of risk management strategies and to some extent ignores the price of risk and its impact on whole life cost of building assets. There is a pressing need for a universal framework for the determination of fair value of risks throughout the PPP procurement processes. Risk Pricing Strategies for Public-Private Partnership Projects addresses the issues of risk pricing and demonstrates the use of a coherent strategy to arrive at a fair risk price. The focus of the book is on providing risk pricing strategies to maximise return on risk retention and allocation in the procurement of PPP projects. With its up-to-date coverage of the latest developments in risk pricing and comprehensive treatment of the methodologies involved in designing and building risk pricing strategies, the book offers a simple model for pricing risks. The book follows a thematic structure: PPP processes map; Risk, uncertainty and bias; Risk pricing management strategies; Risk pricing measurement and modelling; Risk pricing at each of the project life cycle stages – and deals with all the important risk pricing issues, using relevant real-world situations through case study examples. It explains how the theory and strategies of risk pricing can be successfully applied to real PPP projects and reflects the broad understanding required by today’s project risk analysts, in their new and important role in PPP contract management.
