Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found out about this book because it was banned in a Fremont, CA school district when concerned parents and caregivers were up in arms about the content and thought their children shouldn't be exposed to this. Albeit this is meant as a college textbook, as a mental health clinician working with teenagers, I think this book would be extremely helpful in the psychoeducation of youth -- I mean, would those parents rather have their kids find out about sex, drugs, alcohol from experimentation and from their peers? How many of those parents and caregivers have "the sex talk" with their children? But with the age of technology, smartphones, and social media, young people have had to navigate even more nuanced relational aspects. I was sold on this book after reading a vignette on "Hooking Up," about two characters, Madison and Tomas -- check it out for yourself on page 259.

For me, I will not use the textbook to endorse my clients to engage in a particular behavior or to impose a particular stance with regards to premarital sex or substance use. I plan to use the textbook to give my clients information -- which the book does in an educational, straightforward manner -- so that they can read it and make the healthiest decisions for themselves. As a clinical social worker, I'm biased, but I'm really glad this book devoted a section on mental health and what it is, and how to improve their mental health. I think that if used judiciously and age-appropriately, this can be a helpful tool of psychoeducation for young people, teenagers. And perhaps they might be more receptive to this medium (reading about the matter on their own, privately), compared to having an in vivo conversation about sex and intimacy with their therapist/teacher/parent/caregiver.

The book gives you, in my opinion, pointless portfolios to do. I really enjoyed doing the medical insurance exercise just because it's useful and something you actually need to know. Other than that, this book covers a general view of public health and the different problems that our health specialists have with our society. They cover recent topics such as E-Cigs, ebola and the overdose of ibuprofen. It's not just the social side of public health but also the medical side of it. You'll learn about the brain, heart, lungs and how they react to certain situations/drugs/illnesses.

The book was exactly as it appears! It arrived early for my online college course! Interesting book! It seems to be aimed for young adults in the questions it asks, which is a fresh new approach to just teaching the material. The user is asked to examine their life and their habits as they read the book. Great book honestly.
