Children who exhibit severe externalising behaviour during the primary school period run the risk of later on developing serious problems such as antisocial and delinquent behaviour, addiction and anxiety & mood symptoms.
Prevention for Rotterdam youth
Also in the New Rotterdam's youth system, the emphasis is on prevention. The establishment of the Rotterdam Academic Collaborative ST-RAW has recently given a boost to a sustained and joint effort on the research into the effectiveness and implementation of new prevention strategies. This study will, therefore, make an important contribution to the objectives of ST-RAW.
