While health and wellbeing is a primary focus in education, health, sports and related legislation, there is little available that presents high standard and practically relevant studies under one cover. To address that need, this collection brings together a contemporary, comprehensive and up-to-date overview on adolescent wellbeing within an Australasian context.
This curated collection of the YSA articles from the book is designed for a broad range of readers, in particular those wanting to work within both a clinical and educational context. The content will be of interest to practitioners, students and teachers, and to youth researchers.
