Risk Factors Among Young People
Risk Factors Among Young People. Research has identified factors in children's and young people's lives associated with an increased risk of problems at school, drug and alcohol misuse and criminal behaviour. Other factors protect them from difficulties, even when heavily exposed to risk. This evidence has established the potential for strategies to promote children's positive development, based on the risk and protection profile of the neighbourhoods where they live. "Youth at risk? A national survey of risk factors, protective factors and problem behaviour among young people in England, Scotland and Wales" by Sarah Beinart, Barry Anderson, Stephanie Lee and David Utting is published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
