Summary

For undergraduate-level courses in Adolescence or Adolescent Development, in departments of psychology, child/human development, human ecology, family studies, nursing, education, or social work.

This Canadian adaptation of a highly regarded US text offers a unique, integrated treatment of the central themes in the contemporary study of adolescence--development, diversity, context, and application--the key components of a lifespan perspective. It enables Canadian students to understand the bases of the developmental changes young people experience during the adolescent period (ages 10-20), to appreciate the important instances of diversity, to recognize the important role played in adolescent development of the different instances of the context, or ecology, of human development, and to understand the ways in which knowledge may be applied to promote positive development among young people. This integration of themes helps students fully appreciate the dynamic character of the field of adolescent development today.
