Summary

More students learn from John Santrock's Adolescence than from any other text in this field. Students and instructors rely on the careful balance of accurate, current research and applications to the real lives of adolescents. The fully-revised eleventh edition includes a new chapter on health, expanded coverage of late adolescence, and more than 1200 research citations from the 21st century.

New Features

  • Because of the increased interest in adolescent health in recent years, a new chapter, Health (Chap. 15), has been added. Important topics such as stress, exercise, and eating disorders are included in this new chapter.
  • This edition includes a more extensive research focus with more than 1200 21st century citations and greater emphasis on culture, college and emerging adulthood, and health and well-being.
  • The new edition has been revised and reorganized where appropriate, to improve the overall clarity of the presentation. For example, Chapter 7 (Sexuality) has been restructured and there is a new section on sexual attitudes and behavior.
