For courses in Adolescent Development

An overview of adolescence that helps students see themselves in the discipline
The Adolescent: Development, Relationships, and Culture offers an eclectic, interdisciplinary approach to the study of adolescence, presenting biological, psychological, and sociological viewpoints alongside educational, demographic, and economic data. Author Kim Dolgin places emphasis upon American adolescents, but also explores the issues facing adolescents in the developing world, as well as in Europe and Oceania. The Fourteenth Edition offers coverage of contemporary topics – such as increases in youth homelessness and sexting – to command student interest and reinforce the relevance of the course.

NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.

The Adolescent: Development, Relationships, and Culture, Fourteenth Edition is also available via Revel™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.

You can also purchase a loose-leaf print reference to complement Revel The Adolescent: Development, Relationships, and Culture . This is optional.

Author Biography

Kim Dolgin received her undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Pennsylvania. She majored in biology and physical anthropology as an undergrad, completed a masters in evolutionary biology, and then went on for a Ph.D. in psychology there. Her first full-time academic position was as an assistant professor at the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota, and it was there that she initially became interested in adolescent psychology. Later, she moved to Ohio Wesleyan University, where she continued to teach Adolescent Psychology, and also taught Child Psychology and Human Sexuality. She ended her teaching career at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, lecturing in both the College of Education and in the College of Science’s psychology departments. Her research has spanned diverse topics: from comparative cognition to parent-child, sibling, and friendship relationships, to music perception, to the development of higher-order reasoning capabilities, to cyber-bullying. She is the recipient of three university-wide teaching awards. Now semi-retired, Kim is an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys bird watching, traveling, and participating in community service projects.
