Adolescent Coping: Theoretical and Research Perspectives

Adolescence is a time when coping is very important, when many new experiences and responsabilities are thrust upon individuals. Young people need to cope in a variety of settings, including school, home, peer groups and the workplace, and with a range of life problems such as divorce and examinations. Frydenberg provides a clear account of current research and thinking on coping, illustrated by the voices of young people throughout the book. Adolescent Coping focuses on how young people manage a range of life problems, and on the coping styles of particular groups, such as the gifted and those with illness. The author addresses the relationships between coping and age, gender and ethnicity, and between family functioning and coping. She also considers the measurements of coping, how we learn to cope, and such areas as social support and depression.
