9780123744241: Adolescence

This edited textbook will be appropriate for use in advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses and will serve as a comprehensive and timely introduction to the field of adolescent development, providing students with a strong foundation for understanding the biological, cognitive and psychosocial transitions occurring during adolescence. While certain normative biological and cognitive processes are relevant for all youth, development varies dramatically based on a youth's position in society. The volume will focus on contextual factors such as culture, racial identity, socioeconomic position and sociopolitical and historical events, highlighting the impact such factors have on the physiological and psychological processes and treating them as key elements in understanding development during this life stage. The authors will cover the major theoretical positions (both historical and contemporary) about adolescence as well as the relevant research and application. Additionally, modern phenomena - the ever-increasing influence of pop culture (i.e. Hip Hop), mass media and technology (i.e., the internet, gaming) and the evolution of family, education and the church - will be explored in depth. Each chapter will be written by a known expert in the field.

* More extensive analysis of cultural, political and socioeconomic factors impacting development than competing texts


* Research-to-Practice section covers evidence-based research on practice implementation


*Edited textbook with known expert writing on each topic offers expert knowledge seldom found in a single-authored work, providing up-to-date syntheis of primary source material which does not need to be supplemented with additional materials


*The only advanced text with ancillary support and pedagogy - instructor web site with testbank and image collection, plus summary box and study questions in each chapter
