1 Jan 2011
Kim Gale Dolgin
For undergraduate courses in Adolescence and Adolescent Development The Adolescent: Development, Relationships and Culture offers an eclectic, interdisciplinary approach to the study of adolescence, presenting both psychological and sociological viewpoints as well as educational, demographic, and economic data. This text discusses not just one theory on the subject, but many, and outlines the contributions, strengths, and weaknesses of each. The authors also take into consideration current and important topics such as ethnic identity formation, gender issues, the Internet, effects of single-parent families, etc. The 13th edition of Dolgin is available with MyVirtualTeen! MyVirtualTeen (www.myvirtualteen.com) is an interactive simulation that allows you to raise a virtual child from birth to age 18 and monitor the effects of specific parenting decisions over time, with a specific focus on the teenage years.
