This book captures the physical, cognitive, social, and personal development of individuals from childhood through adulthood while continuously placing theory and research in the context of how they can be applied to readers' lives.
Designed to capture the physical, cognitive, social, and personality development as individuals move from childhood into adulthood, Adolescence 1e provides an accurate, broad, and comprehensive introduction to the field of adolescent development. More importantly, however, it places these theories and research findings in the context of how they can be applied to readers’ lives. The book is intended to excite readers about the field of adolescence, draw them into its way of looking at the world, and to shape their understanding of the significant developmental issues that characterize this period. By presenting the useful, practical information that will help readers make life decisions about relationships, education, and careers?the very stuff of adolescence?the book is intended to keep enthusiasm about the discipline alive long after students’ formal introduction to the field has ended.
