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?
