The Guidebook to Effective Prevention of Youth Problems has been developed by a team from the Institute for Integrated Prevention and published in September 2015 by the Centre for the Development of Education (under the ESF project). The publication summarizes the experience of many years of positive work of the authors. In our opinion, it is of strategic importance for the formation of the foundations of a coherent program of action in the area of education and prevention, which are based on scientific research, values and practical experience. The recommendations contained therein should be known to the makers of social, educational and health policy. The Guidebook is written in an understandable language and it forms a hybrid between a scientific report and a practical guide. Guidebook will be sent by ORE to the education departments of all local governments in Poland. The authors shall endeavour to reach other institutions with the publication.
