Adolescent Risk and Vulnerability is a summary of a workshop held in 2001 by the Board on Children, Youth, and Families.  The workshop's goal was to put into perspective the total burden of vulnerability that adolescents fave, taking advantage of the growing societal concern for adolescents, the need to set priorities for adolescents' needs, and the opportunity to apply decision-making perspectives to this critical area.
