Problematic Behaviors during Adolescence / Edition 1

Adolescent Psychology courses often touch on problematic behaviors but rarely delve into the complex causes of these behaviors. Dr. Jeffrey Haugaard has written the only text to examine some of the most prevalent problematic behavior and provides students with a model for understanding the causes of such behavior. Dr. Haugaard uses college-aged individuals in chapter opening cases to draw students into the content of the chapter. The focus of the text is understanding the complex factors that contribute to developing behavior.

The book is designed to be used as a supplemental text in an Adolescent Psychology course where the instructor is interested in examining the causes behind the behavior. It could also be used in a graduate Adolescent Psychopathology course.
