Helps students understand how culture impacts development in adolescence and emerging adulthood.
Grounded in a global cultural perspective (within and outside of the US), this text enriches the discussion with historical context and an interdisciplinary approach, including studies from fields such as anthropology and sociology, in addition to the compelling psychological research on adolescent development. This book also takes into account the period of “emerging adulthood” (ages 18-25), a term coined by the author, and an area of study for which Arnett is a leading expert.
Addressing both the changes in the study of adolescent behavior and the changes in the nature of adolescent development in Western society, this informative collection of readings provides a comprehensive cross cultural perspective of adolescent development. Covering every aspect of adolescent development as it takes place in cultures worldwide and historically, this book takes a longer age range approach to emerging adulthood and provides a look at this pivotal developmental period extending into the early twenties. Essays analyze the changes in the study of adolescent development and changes in adolescent development from age ten to early twenties historically and around the world. For individuals interested in adolescent development.
