Personality Development In Adolescence: A Cross National and Lifespan Perspective
Eva Skoe, Anna von der Lippe
Routledge, Jul 22, 2005 - Psychology - 240 pages
The formation of identity in adolescence is the most central concept in psychological and sociological studies of young people. Most theories to date assume that adolescents share the same conditions under which their identities are formed.
Personality Development in Adolescence is a collection of work by leading researchers that considers different contexts affecting personality and identity development. Three main contexts are considered: cultural, family and life-span development.
Of central importance to developmental psychologists, this collection will also be valuable to social workers, teachers, nurses and all those whose work involves young people.
