Overview

Adolescent Portraits is a compelling anthology of first-person accounts written by college students that illustrate the contemporary theories and research that surround adolescent development today.

 

These real-life cases represent a fascinating, diverse cross-section of contemporary adolescence and cover a variety of issues, including family and peer relationships, eating disorders, self image, illness, and disabilities.

 

Features:

  • A multicultural approach makes this book both unique and relevant to a diverse undergraduate population, as students read about the development of lives both similar to and quite dissimilar from their own.
  • Six New Cases, including new cases highlighting racial and ethnic identity, enable a deeper understanding of the issues.
  • New follow-up reflections, written by the original case writers several years after they wrote the original, keep the book current and up-to-date while also helping students understand adolescence as a stage in the life cycle.
