Description - Personality Development in Adolescence by Eva Skoe
Challenge and conflict are an integral part of adolescent life here in the West. This intriguing book looks at adolescence from a cross-cultural perspective, including research presented here for the first time, from Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia, China and Japan. The roles of morality, family contexts, social change, and gender are considered in adolescent personality development by contributors well known in their respective fields. In three parts, Personality Development in Adolescence begins with a look at related studies of adolescent development of individuation, ego, identity and moral orientation related to family context in several countries, with a focus on family communication and adolescent personality. Personality and Development in Adolescence examines development in differing cultural contexts and concludes with an exploration of life span issues of moral development, separation-individuation, and psychosocial issues, focusing on Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt.
This book will be of central importance to developmental and clinical psychologists, sociologists and criminologists, and valuable to social workers, teachers, nurses and all those working with young people.
