Adolescence and Youth: Psychological Development in a Changing World
Making sense of the issues and challenges faced by young people today requires a thoughtful, thorough, and scientific exploration of adolescent development in an ever-changing world. Through four editions, Adolescence and Youth: Psychological Development in a Changing World has filled the need for such a text.
In this new edition, John Conger and Nancy Galambos emphasize a life span perspective, addressing development as a lifelong process that results from the continuing interaction between individuals and their environment. They present a new focus on adolescents at risk, reflecting the growing body of research on the nature, sources, and consequences of problem behaviors, such as substance abuse, adolescent pregnancy, youth violence, eating disorders, and depression.
This fifth edition also features a number of new boxes that present new and exciting research and focus on important social issues, challenging readers to consider alternative ways to view social problems. Additional boxes present real life stories about the joys and pains of adolescence. With an enhanced, integrated focus on gender and ethnicity and a new full-color design, Adolescence and Youth offers the most up-to-date, visually effective coverage for your adolescent development course.
