Besides examining the scale and nature of the problem, it traces the effects of each upon individuals, families and the larger society. All chapters provide an overview of policy and legislation that aim to deal with these problems. It explores important theoretical frameworks that have been used to understand social problems and it seeks to locate ideas and debates within a bio-psychosocial framework.
