Adolescence in a journey to adulthood. This book examines the ways in which young people navigate through this period in their lives, and the consequences their efforts have on their well-being. The contributors to this volume discuss the tools adolescents construct to direct their lives along the path to adulthood, the kinds of identities and self-concepts they develop during this process, and the role of parents and peers throughout this journey.
This book offers a new perspective on issues discussed previously in adolescent research, such as identity development, problem behaviors, family relationships, and education. It provides a new outlook and research findings not only for students and researchers in this field, but for all people who are interested in deepening their understanding of adolescent development in a variety of cross-cultural contexts.
