Use this important intervention to improve your practice with substance-using youths and their families!

This vital book gives you a detailed review of a National Institute on Drug Abuse-funded, long-term clinical trial of the Family Empowerment Intervention (FEI). The subjects are youths who have been arrested and processed at the Hillsborough County Juvenile Assessment Center and their families. With information on the conceptual foundations and clinical practices of the intervention and an examination of its one-year and longer-term impact on these youths’ recidivism and psychosocial functioning, Family Empowerment Intervention: An Innovative Service for High-Risk Youth and Their Families will help you provide better services to these difficult-to-serve clients.

  • examines the pressing need for this kind of intervention
  • gives you an essential overview of the FEI
  • describes the selection process for subject involvement in the project and the methods of data collection used
  • examines the FEI’s impact on crime as well as its short- and long-term impact on and drug and alcohol use
  • suggests ways to improve the FEI
Complete with dozens of easy-to-understand tables and figures as well as five helpful appendixes, this well-referenced volume is essential reading for anyone working with this highly volatile population. Make it a part of your collection today!
