Adjustment of Adolescents: Cross-Cultural Similarities and Differences


Based on original research carried out from Phoenix to Hong Kong, Adjustment of Adolescents examines adolescent adjustment to school, family and friends across seven cultures. Ruth and William Scott focus on social influences from family, friends and culture as they impinge on the adolescent's coping mechanisms, and examine the adolescent's personality, attitudinal, demographic and family characteristics. The authors also provide valuable insights into the methodologies of cross-cultural study.
