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 and 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.
