Family Matters No. 59 - June 2001

Working with families to promote healthy adolescent development

John Toumbourou and Elizabeth Gregg

Abstract

There has been a change in recent years concerning attitudes about intervention for families with adolescent children. A perception that adolescence was 'too late' for family intervention has gradually shifted as evidence has accumulated suggesting that interventions through this period can contribute to healthy youth development. This paper explores the evidence for family focused adolescent health promotion.
