This book focuses on school based curricular and co-curricular strategies to deal with the problem behaviours of adolescent and pre-adolescent students. The specific issues addressed in the study deserve a very significant attention in the current scenario. The issues include problem behaviour tendencies related to personal and academic aspects, drug abuse and sexual exploitation among secondary school students. The strategies developed tried to integrate the basic principles of positive psychology, cognitive behaviour therapy and behavioural approach. Apart from the problem addressed in the study, the book pay special emphasis to the Embedded research design that combines both quantitative and qualitative strands of data with utmost care. The qualitative data has been given preference as the study followed multiple case study analysis. Hence it is expected that the presentation of the study will benefit research scholars in the field of education as well as other social science disciplines.
