Encyclopedia of Adolescence
Substantively, the Encyclopedia draws from four major areas of research relating to adolescence. The first broad area includes research relating to Self, Identity and Development in Adolescence. This area covers research relating to identity, from early adolescence through emerging adulthood; basic aspects of development (e.g., biological, cognitive, social); and foundational developmental theories. In addition, this area focuses on various types of identity: gender, sexual, civic, moral, political, racial, spiritual, religious, and so forth.
The second broad area centers on Adolescents Social and Personal Relationships. This area of research examines the nature and influence of a variety of important relationships, including family, peer, friends, sexual and romantic as well as significant nonparental adults. The third area examines Adolescents in Social Institutions. This area of research centers on the influence and nature of important institutions that serve as the socializing contexts for adolescents.
These major institutions include schools, religious groups, justice systems, medical fields, cultural contexts, media, legal systems, economic structures, and youth organizations. Adolescent Mental Health constitutes the last major area of research. This broad area of research focuses on the wide variety of human thoughts, actions, and behaviors relating to mental health, from psychopathology to thriving. Major topic examples include deviance, violence, crime, pathology (DSM), normalcy, risk, victimization, disabilities, flow, and positive youth development.
