Praise for Adolescent Portraits
“Adolescent Portraits is the finest set of case studies available on adolescence. The text consistently gets rave reviews from my students. The cases are engaging, well written and highly instructive. I can not imagine teaching my course on adolescence without it.”
Christopher Roellke, Vassar College
“Most undergraduates find themselves fresh from their own adolescent experiences. They come to a class about adolescence with many questions that Adolescent Portraits helps to answer. These biographies not only help students to understand their textbook better, but help students to truly understand their own and others' adolescent experiences better. ”
Charlotte N. Markey, Rutgers University
“The narratives in this book offer students diverse perspectives on universal dilemmas. Students gain insight into the conflicts and themes underlying their own developmental journey to adulthood. ”
Donna Brent, Skidmore College
“I have used Adolescent Portraits as the primary text in my Adolescent Psychology course for several years. It is a great resource, which allows the students to experience life circumstances beyond their own and can be used as a source in which students can apply theory and/or adolescent concepts. Every semester students tell me it is the best and most practical text of their college career. ”
Tonya Rondinone, Saint Joseph College
