Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood: A Cultural Approach Reviews
This is a decent book on adolescent development. One nice feature is that it includes historical and cultural sidebars and compares American culture to cultures around the world. I did feel, however, that beyond the "Cognitive Foundations", "Cultural Beliefs", and "Family Relationships" chapters that this text was written for someone who was not working with adolescents. I did not find it particularly insightful about anything else due to working with adolescents every day.
This book is especially pertinent to today. It used to be that as soon as you were done with high school your adult life started. Now, as lives become more linear, young adults have an awkward transient time, where they learn what being an adult will mean for them. As this phase of "emerging adulthood" is a new idea, it was awesome to read it from Jeffrey Jensen Arnett's perspective, as he is the leading scholar on this transition. I was able to read this book in one of my classes at BYU, alongside another prominent scholar on this topic, and found myself relating a lot to trying to understand where I fit in the adult world. I would recommend this book to anyone studying human development or anyone with teenagers or working with them. Understanding how they view themselves in their transition period would be extremely helpful in building a strong mentoring relationship.
Title: Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood (5th)Series: - Author: Jeffrey Jensen ArnettGenre: Educational/ Human DevelopmentRating: 3.5 starsArnett has provided an informative text that provides readers with useful knowledge about the development of adolescents and the issues and challenges that one faces during puberty. This text was recommended by my university as the course reading for a subject. It aided in providing the facts in a fast and thorough way. It was well presented, clear and concise. Well worth the read if you're interested or studying the topic.
I thought this was an interesting theory. The book was based on surveys and interviews. For every example of one thing, there was another example of the opposite thing. Though honest this was a little frustrating that nothing definitive could be said about emerging adults.
Don't really want to count it, but I did read the entire thing, so I may as well.
Short chapters which makes this easier to read.
