Text and Turbulence: Representing Adolescence as Pathology in the Human Services.
Finn, Janet L.
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n2 p167-91 May 2001
Examines constructions of adolescence and pathology and their relation to human service intervention. Locates history of related discourses along a trajectory of 20th-century capitalism, attending especially to racialized, gendered, and class-based aspects. Argues that the youth treatment industry may not be preparing youth for healthy adulthood, but rather, for their place in a continuum of care, control, and containment. (Author/KB)
