HSP 3230 - High Risk and Offender Youth

Credits: 4

Prerequisite(s): ENG 1010, ENG 1020, and HSP 1010; or permission of instructor

Description: This course is designed to provide an overview and analysis of differential theory and approaches to working with high risk and offender youth who are alcohol- and drug-involved. Special emphasis will be given to the role of community, family and youth-specific risk and protective factors. Prevention of not only alcohol and drug problems, but other serious contemporary youth issues, such as violence, teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, suicide, and school drop-out, will be addressed. An overview of multiple and sometimes fragmented service delivery systems will be provided. Special topics will also include multicultural issues, intervention techniques, and innovative alcohol- and drug-treatment approaches found to be particularly effective with this population.
