520    This straightforward reference surveys the knowledge base 
       on homeless, runaway, and thrown-away children and 
       adolescents and makes concrete recommendations for policy 
       and practice. The book's ecological approach grounds 
       readers in the demographics of this diverse population, 
       family and other risk factors for leaving home (and 
       alternative arrangements such as foster care), and the 
       survival skills homeless young people use to sustain 
       themselves. Chapters cover a gamut of physical, 
       psychological, and social problems, from drug abuse to 
       depression to STIs, with special attention paid to the 
       multiple difficulties faced by LGBT street youth and 
       street youths' experiences with the legal and justice 
       systems. The author also assesses established and emerging
       interventions used with runaway youth, and the 
       effectiveness of policy initiatives dealing with improving
       conditions for youth on the streets and at risk. Included 
       in the coverage: · Runaway youth at the time of their 
       disappearance. · Food insecurity and related problems 
       among homeless and runaway youth. · Substance use among 
       homeless and runaway adolescents. · Runaway and homeless 
       sexual minorities. Court responses to runaway offenses and
       other juvenile status violations. · Street youth in 
       different countries. Presenting the complex situation as 
       it stands, and with clear suggestions for action, Runaway 
       and Homeless Youth is a valuable resource for family 
       therapists, sociologists, social workers, school 
       administrators, health professionals, police, judges, and 
       other criminal justice professional, along with 
       professionals involved in young people's well-being and 
       policy-making initiatives.
