Many of today's children are in danger of growing up without a conscience-the neglected children of too-busy parents or the abandoned and abused children from disrupted or violent families. Children in this ever-growing segment of the population pose a threat to themselves, their families, and to the larger community. High Risk, a groundbreaking study, offers sobering case histories and explores the factors in U.S. society that contribute to the problem.
Magid and McKelvey then outline measures for preventing the development of antisocial behavior-including finding the best professional help if a child is at risk, minimizing the trauma of adoption and foster care, and more.
