Adolescent Psychology will explore adolescent development as it occurs in within various contexts, the family, peers, family, school, and the wider culture. Within each context, cognitive, emotional, self, social, and moral development will be considered. A variety of theoretical perspectives will be used to approach the subject. In order to better understand the adolescent, a variety of topics will be considered, including historical and contemporary perspectives, physical processes, sexuality, gender issues, values, identity achievement and culture. Specific attention will be devoted to problems which may develop in adolescent development and how educators and parents can identify and work with these adolescents.
