Help students understand how culture impacts development in adolescence and emerging adulthood
Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood: A Cultural Approach helps students examine this dynamic and complex age period through the lens of culture. Utili2ing a multidisciplinary approach, author Jeffrey Jensen Arnett seeks to frame not only how students understand themselves, but how they understand others and how they think about the world around them. The text is distinguished by its emphasis on the period of “emerging adulthood” (ages 18–25), a term coined by the author and a growing area of study. The Sixth Edition includes the latest data as well as fresh content that ensures an up-to-date learning experience.
