Description - Adolescent Romantic Relations and Sexual Behavior by Paul Florsheim
Developmental and clinical researchers have only just discovered the phenomoneon of adolescent romance as a topic for serious scientific inquiry. This discovery may be related to the overwhelming evidence that adult romantic relationships are failing at alarming rates. Dramatic increases in the rate of divorce, out of wedlock childbirth, and relationship violence lead to questions about the developmental precursors of romantic love and commitment. What's wrong with love and can it be fixed? This volume addresses a serious gap in our understanding of adolescent development. Part one of this volume focuses on romantic relations and sexual behaviour from the perspective of normative adolescent development; part two focuses on romantic and sexual behaviour among high-risk adolescents; and part three focuses on the practical implications of current theory and research for clinicians, educators and health administrators working with adolescents. Together the chapters in this volume lay a foundation for understanding how adolescents successfully navigate the tumultuous waters of young love.
