Advances in Adolescent Psychology.
Violato, Claudio; Travis, Leroy
Adolescence is a multiplicity of events, experiences, behavior, people, and cultural meanings. This book attempts to provide detailed and in-depth analysis of the central issues related to adolescent psychology, while taking this multiplicity into account. A comprehensive representation of the topic is provided through integration of historical, socio-political, and empirical research with theories on adolescence. Following an introduction, the text is divided into four sections: (1) Fundamentals encompassing theories of adolescence, history of adolescence, and Skinner, behaviorism and adolescence; (2) The Content of Adolescence dealing with culture mass media, youth, and adolescence in English literature; (3) Nature of Adolescence discussing long-term implications of childhood attachments, and anger and sadness experiences in late adolescence; and (4) Problems in Adolescence including suicide, delinquency, childhood sexual abuse, and creativity, intelligence and achievement. Contains 36 tables, 6 figures, and a short index. Each chapter contains numerous references. (SR)
