Early intervention for childhood behaviours : a literature review
University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education
Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, 2008
This literature review focuses on the correlation between early childhood problematic behaviours and future health risks, such as substance use or abuse, juvenile delinquency and mental illness. It reviews common problematic behaviours from early childhood to adolescence. The author presents studies that indicate correlated findings and considers the relevance of these correlations, as well as recommendations for breaking the cycle of behaviour patterns. The literature review also explores alternative theories that explain behaviour development. The author summarizes the themes that emerge from the literature review and discusses possible research avenues for future intervention programs of youth in this population.
