This report summarizes the presentations and discussion at a workshop entitled Opportunities to Promote Child and Adolescent Development During the After-School Hours, convened on October 21, 1999. The workshop was organized by the Board on Children, Youth, and Families and its Forum on Adolescence of the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, with funding from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. This workshop brought together policy makers, researchers, and practitioners to examine research on the developmental needs of children and adolescents -ages 5 to 14 years-and the types of after-school programs designed to promote the health and development of these young people. Intended to provide a forum for discussion among the various stakeholders, the workshop did not generate conclusions about the types of programs that are most effective, nor did it generate specific recommendations about after-school programs or promote a particular approach. The workshop coincided with release of the Packard Foundation's fall 1999 issue of The Future of Children, entitled "When School Is Out." Focusing on after-school programs, the journal provided some context for the workshop, providing a backdrop for discussing the importance of after-school programs, the types of programs that exist across the country, and the policy climate that surrounds after-school programs. This report summarizes the workshop.

A mentor provides support and guidance for a child or youth in personal, academic, and other areas of life. As a public policy tool, mentoring is a positive youth intervention that reduces risky and negative behaviors. Mentoring has grown in popularity and is widely accepted as a valuable support for at-risk children and youth. This report examines the research literature evaluating the effectiveness of mentoring programs from 1995 to 2000. It explores the evaluation literature on traditional one-to-one, community-based friendship programs and on alternative models such as school-based programs. The report also identifies common themes in the literature: mentoring as one component of a more comprehensive youth development strategy; the impact of program infrastructure on effectiveness; and the need for additional evaluations.

Mentoring for Young People in Care and Leaving Care offers a rich exploration of the theory, research and practice relating to youth mentoring as a means of essential social support. Brady, Dolan and McGregor ground their work on the premise that the informal social support provided through a high-quality mentoring relationship can help young people in care to sustain positive mental health, cope with stress and fulfil their potential through adolescence and into adulthood. It provides an up-to-date synthesis of research findings in relation to natural mentoring, formal mentoring and youth-initiated mentoring for children in care and explores the challenges and considerations relating to practice in this area. Illustrated with the details of original research with care-experienced young people, it offers much-needed insight into how young people interpret and make sense of their experiences in care and of mentoring. Written to be accessible by those with limited knowledge of youth mentoring, this timely publication will be essential reading for academics, policy makers and practitioners in the fields of adolescent development, social care, social work and youth work.

This issue of Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics focuses on non-pharmacologic interventions for ADHD in children and adolescents. Editors Stephen Faraone's and Kevin Antshel's goal with this publication is to help the clinician decipher the literature base in an attempt to make informed decisions and recommendations for the families that they treat in light of new non-pharmacologic interventions. To guide readers of this issue, Authors present information in a specific structure designed to describe the non-pharmacologic intervention theoretically and practically, as well as provide clinically useful information regarding who is most likely to respond and which outcomes are most likely to be affected by treatment. Likewise, Authors include information on adverse effects / contraindications of the non-pharmacologic treatments and how treatments should be sequenced and/or integrated with other treatments. Science is translated into clinical practice that can be easily applied; this volume strikes a balance between reviewing the evidence base and providing clinically useful information. Among the topics are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Adolescents with ADHD; Nutritional Supplements for the Treatment of ADHD; School-Based Interventions for Elementary School Students with ADHD; Middle and High School Based Interventions for Adolescents with ADHD; Healthy Body, Healthy Mind? The Effectiveness of Physical Activity to Treat ADHD in Children; Neurofeedback for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A Review of Current Evidence; Social Skills Training; Behavior Management for Preschool-Aged Children; Computer-based Cognitive Training for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A review of current evidence; Restriction and Elimination Diets in ADHD Treatment; Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Treatment of ADHD: A Review; Summer Treatment Programs for Youth with ADHD; Non-Pharmacologic Treatments for ADHD; Behavior Management for School Aged Children with ADHD; Family Therapy for Adolescents with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder; An Integrated Dietary/Nutritional Approach to ADHD; Toward an Evidence-Based Taxonomy of Non-Pharmacologic Treatments for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

One of the most enigmatic issues of contemporary homelessness is that of schooling. The phenomenon of homeless families with school-age children, as well as a growing population of independent school-age youths, has served to focus homelessness as an issue of concern for policy makers, educational administrators and practitioners. The book provides an analysis of educational policy as it relates to this special population, offers practical strategies for effectively serving homeless children, and features a review of emerging homeless education programmes that appear to be successfully addressing the educational needs of homeless children and adolescents.
