9780135074794: Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood: A Cultural Approach

For undergraduate courses in Adolescence and Adolescent Development

 

Focused on a global cultural perspective that incorporates research on adolescence through emerging adulthood

 

Grounded in a global cultural perspective (within and outside of the US), this text includes a considerable amount of anthropology, sociology, and international research in addition to the compelling psychological research on adolescent development. This book also takes into account the period of emerging adulthood (ages 18-25), an area sometimes neglected but of particular interest to many students who see themselves reflected in the research.

  Looking for additional resources to help you understand the material and succeed in this course? MyDevelopmentLab contains study tools such as flashcards, self tests, videos, as well as MyVirtulTeen which allows you to raise your own virtual teenager, focusing on the ages 10 through 18.  MyDevelpmentLab is available at www.mydevelopmentlab.com.
