Paul Kaplan presents multiple perspectives on the issues surrounding adolescence in order to give students a more complete picture of topics and debates. Based around five key themes--adolescence is a time of choices; it is shaped by context and influenced by group membership; the adolescent experience has changed over the last 50 years; and current views of adolescence are becoming more balanced--in-text discussion not only covers the problems and challenges adolescents face, but also the positive adjustments and coping mechanisms they use.A "Focus" box in each chapter covers an applied issue or area of concern in depth, such as cults, gangs, the Self in different cultures, partner violence, and the question of parental notification for abortion. "Placing...in Perspective" presents each chapter's main area of study in the broader context of adolescence so that readers understand how the chapter fits into the overall picture.Paul S. Kaplan is the author of 'Adolescence', published 2003 under ISBN 9780395908235 and ISBN 039590823X.
