This book motivates students to challenge their own beliefs and assumptions and to critically evaluate the research, experts' opinions, statistics, and theories about adolescence. The book incorporates contemporary issues and research on adolescence, such as the impact of temperament on adolescence, attention deficit disorders, mothers and teenage sons, and adolescents with troubled peer relationships. In addition, readers will come to recognize the powerful role of race, family income and gender in adolescents' lives. Nielsen engages the reader through the use of an informal writing style, photographs, cartoons, graphics, self-quizzes and boxed inserts.
