The Adolescent Experience places the college student at the very heart of the book. The authors engage in a dialogue with the reader that is warm, caring, and often humorous as they write and share material about this time of life. The authors emphasize the role that development and society play in the lives of young people. The book has a solid research basis with a historical and multicultural focus. But most important, the book is practical and applied with the strongest prevention/health promotion material available in any basic undergraduate adolescent psychology text currently on the market.
Undergraduates in courses dealing with adolescence, such as Human Development and Family Relations, Home Economics, Family Studies, Child Development, Education, Social Work, and Psychology Departments.
