Adolescent Portraitsis a compelling anthology of first-person accounts written by college students that illustrate the contemporary theories and research that surround adolescent development today. These real-life cases represent a fascinating, diverse cross-section of contemporary adolescence and cover a variety of issues, including family and peer relationships, eating disorders, self image, illness, and disabilities. Features: A multicultural approach makes this book both unique and relevant to a diverse undergraduate population, as students read about the development of lives both similar to and quite dissimilar from their own. Six New Cases, including new cases highlighting racial and ethnic identity, enable a deeper understanding of the issues. New follow-up reflections, written by the original case writers several years after they wrote the original, keep the book current and up-to-date while also helping students understand adolescence as a stage in the life cycle.Smulyan, Lisa is the author of 'Adolescent Portraits Identity, Relationships, and Challenges', published 2007 under ISBN 9780205502042 and ISBN 0205502040.
