This book deals with the implementation and application of the "in the best interests of the child principle" in research and practice. With contributions by authors from nine different countries (United States, Belgium, France, Norway, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Israel, Ireland, Canada) an international perspective is adopted. After the outline of the theme given in the introductory chapter, the first part illustrates the search for theory-driven and empirically-based models to deal with the complexity of parenting. In the second part illustrations about the implementation and application of the best interests principle in child and youth care practice are given. Part three is focusing on the organization of child and youth care systems according to the best interests principle.

In his preface to this volume, Lester M. Salamon writes that "Homelessness among children and youth is too serious a problem to be ignored in our national social policy. Both for its immediate effects on those who are homeless, and for the inadequacies it reveals in our social support systems, homelessness among children and youth has truly become a national tragedy. If this book helps to bring this problem to national attention, to document its scope and consequences, and to point the way toward possible solutions, it will have amply served its purpose." Based on a conference sponsored by The Johns Hopkins University Institute for Policy Studies last year, this volume brings together some of the best research and policy analysis ever assembled on this important issue. Among the contributors are Lisa Mihaly, Marjorie J. Robertson, James D. Wright, Yvonne Rafferty, Kay Young McChesney, Chester Hartman, Michael A. Stegman, Linda A. Wolf, and Carol W. Williams. The volume covers issues from the scope of child homelessness to its broader impacts and causes and the social responses needed to copy with it. The volume focuses on two populations with differing needs and solutions: very young children (infants, pre-schoolers, and school age children) who are part of homeless families, and older young people who are homeless but on their own (pregnant teens and teen parents, runaways, and older adolescents). Central to the volume is a critical examination of the health, mental health, developmental and educational impacts produced by homelessness; causes of the problem in society, the economy, and our housing market, and the levels of existing support systems. In short, this is a comprehensive state-of-the-art examination of homelessness as it affects children, and will be greeted as such by policy-makers at all levels of government and by professionals in economics, sociology, social work, and urban studies.

Creating an environment in which children in the United States grow up healthy should be a high priority for the nation. Yet the prevailing pattern of food and beverage marketing to children in America represents, at best, a missed opportunity, and at worst, a direct threat to the health prospects of the next generation. Children’s dietary and related health patterns are shaped by the interplay of many factors—their biologic affinities, their culture and values, their economic status, their physical and social environments, and their commercial media environments—all of which, apart from their genetic predispositions, have undergone significant transformations during the past three decades. Among these environments, none have more rapidly assumed central socializing roles among children and youth than the media. With the growth in the variety and the penetration of the media have come a parallel growth with their use for marketing, including the marketing of food and beverage products. What impact has food and beverage marketing had on the dietary patterns and health status of American children? The answer to this question has the potential to shape a generation and is the focus of Food Marketing to Children and Youth. This book will be of interest to parents, federal and state government agencies, educators and schools, health care professionals, industry companies, industry trade groups, media, and those involved in community and consumer advocacy.

This book presents the results of researches conducted with children and youth at risk for over 20 years in Brazil. It addresses a series of topics related to children and youth living in poverty or in situations of social vulnerability, such as family, sexual and dating violence; adolescent mothers and mothers who put their children for adoption; children and youth living in foster and institutional care; and adolescents involved in drug trafficking or incarcerated in juvenile detention centers. Building upon the Bioecological Theory of Human Development, this volume emphasizes the innovative knowledge about psychosocial development of vulnerable children and youth produced in Brazil and aims to present theoretical and methodological approaches developed especially for the countries of the Global South, in an attempt to overcome the scientific divide between the North and South. Northern research agenda defines as global the theories, methodologies, and application of knowledge on social policies and interventions. However, the contexts, histories, and cultural processes are essential for producing and applying research knowledge according to specific regional characteristics, organizations, and conditions. Human development is related to contextual features and cannot be directly imported from one place to another. Departing from these original theoretical and methodological approaches, the book also presents the results of evidence-based interventions, showing its effectiveness in specific contexts. All of this makes Vulnerable Children and Youth in Brazil – Innovative Approaches from the Psychology of Social Development a valuable tool for psychologists, educators, social scientists and public health professionals studying or working with children and youth at risk in different parts of the world, contributing to the understanding of human development in cultural context.

This volume presents a review of current research on the relationships between dietary intake, growth, physical activity and exercise in different environments throughout the world, and their impact on health and physical fitness. The combined influence of heredity and environment on the potential for growth and functional development has been hotly debated for many years. Amongst the more critical environmental factors commonly considered are nutrition, physical activity and motor stimulation. This book examines how these factors affect the growth and development of children and youth in developed and developing countries. Characteristics of children from Africa, the Indian sub-continent, Europe, Australia, and North and South America are presented by leading exponents of work in these areas. The contents provide new insights on positive health and optimal somatic and functional development during childhood. It will be of interest to a wide range of scientists and health professionals including pedagogues, exercise physiologists, pediatricians, auxologists, nutritionists, dietitians, anthropologists, human biologists and other medical practitioners.
