Parent-adolescent relationships

Front Cover
University Press of America, May 1, 1990 - Family & Relationships - 240 pages
The ten chapters that make up this volume not only cover a broad range of key substantive issues in adolescent research (e.g., ego, development, identity formation, self-esteem, pubertal development, cognitive development, deviant behavior, religiosity, and academic achievement), but as a whole they illustrate some of the key theoretical and methodological trends occuring in parent-adolescent research. Several of the chapters consider the interface between components of the family environment (e.g., the marital and parental systems) or between the family and other social contexts (e.g., peers, school, religion). Methodologically, this set of chapters give an interesting sampling of the variability in design and data analysis used in parent-adolescent studies. Designs include both cross-sectional and longitudinal survey, observation, and case study. This volume should be useful to scholars, graduate students, and professionals interested in adolescent development and behavior in the context of the family and other social environments.
