Abstract

The contemporary adolescent treatment field encompasses a remarkable diversity of ideas, treatment contexts, practice models, and treatment providers. Recently, there have been significant changes in how we conceptualize adolescent problems, the knowledge bases we draw on to craft such understanding, the interventions we use to treat adolescent dysfunction, the contexts in which they are treated, the amount and quality of research on adolescent problems generally, and interventions for adolescent problems in particular. The specialty is more complex and varied than ever before with subspecialties addressing scientific, clinical, public health, and social policy concerns. This work is pursued in a wide variety of research and clinical contexts supported by a diverse group of federal, state, and local agencies and by private foundations.
