It offers invaluable guidance for all professionals involved with adolescents including social workers, health and social care professionals, youth workers, family support workers, teachers, counsellors, mental health teams, A & E staff, police and probation officers. The approach these practitioners take in dealing with the problem has considerable influence over outcomes.
