Adolescent development and adjustment by Lester D Crow( Book )

22 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern psychology interprets adolescence as a phase of an individual's continuing growth and development. Although there is no sharp demarcation between childhood and adolescence, or between adolescence and adulthood, each age period represents a specific stage in the total developmental and adjustment pattern. Moreover, differing environmental conditions and widening personal experiences require that the maturing individual gain increasing power to adapt himself to meet new situations. Adolescent attitudes and behavior differences, therefore, have their roots in childhood growth patterns and experiences. Adolescent Development and Adjustment deals with the developmental trends and the basic areas of adjustment during the teen-age years"--Preface.

"The significance of childhood years to an individual continues to receive the attention of psychologists, sociologists, educators, and other adults interested in human development and adjustment. The authors' chief concern in this treatment is to present, in uninvolved, readable form, the results of research and objective observation concerning the many aspects of childhood nature. Their purpose is to stimulate the reader toward an intelligent understanding of the life pattern of the developing individual from the prenatal period through the early years of adolescence. The point of view presented is comprehensive, integrated and functional. <xh:i>Child Development and Adjustment</xh:i> begins with a general consideration of the child's maturational and experiential needs including the historical background of twentieth century concern with wholesome child rearing. Various approaches to child study then are described. The underlying bases of early growth and development and the various phases of the child's personality are discussed in light of environmental influences that may militate for or against growth. Throughout these areas of discussion (Chapters 3 through 17), the child is viewed as an integrated growing individual who is both dynamic and purposeful. Hence each aspect of development is related to every other so that a picture of the whole child emerges. In Chapter 18, the various problems of adjustment that would be encountered by the child during his maturing years are presented with emphasis on the ways in which he can be helped to resolve his difficulties. The effect of the major influence factors on the child's developing personality that can be found in the home, the school, and the larger community is stressed in Chapters 19 and 20. The approach throughout the book is positive and constructive. The authors offer suggestions to students, teachers, parents, and other adults who are vitally interested in helping children develop their potentialities for wholesome living. The developmental approach is centered around what can be expected of the normal child, but individual deviations among children also receive attention. The reader is urged to engage in the <xh:i>Special Project</xh:i> proposed at the end of each set of "Questions and Topics for Discussion." By continuing this project, chapter by chapter, the reader can compare objectively the behavioral tendencies of his four selected subjects with the personality patterns discussed in the text"--Preface.
