Helps students understand how culture impacts development in adolescence and emerging adulthood.
Grounded in a global cultural perspective (within and outside of the US), this text enriches the discussion with historical context and an interdisciplinary approach, including studies from fields such as anthropology and sociology, in addition to the compelling psychological research on adolescent development. This book also takes into account the period of “emerging adulthood” (ages 18-25), a term coined by the author, and an area of study for which Arnett is a leading expert.
- Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood employs a cultural approach that informs students about what life is like for young people in cultures from around the world, thus broadening their understanding of the diversity of human development. This text strives to have students not only think critically but to learn to think culturally about the studies they examine.
- With an emphasis on adolescence and emerging adulthood from varying cultures and a global view, students are encouraged to think outside of their own experiences. This also encourages critical thinking as students explore the similarities and differences of world around us.
