In the final volume of her trilogy on interlinked social issues, Susan Madden Lankford explores the troubled psyches of young people incarcerated in Juvenile Hall. The perspectives of psychiatrists, neuroscientists, and experts in the field of juvenile justice- combined with striking contributions elicited from the youths themselves-underscore the social and neurobiological impacts of childhood trauma. Born, Not Raisedaims to have a dramatic impact on social policy with its powerful call to action for educators, social workers, psychologists, criminal justice and corrections professionals, as well as parents and parents-to-be. At the heart of Lankford's work is the conviction that early education and youth development are the most effective strategies for breaking the cycle of at-risk behavior and helping our country's youth thrive.
