Product description


It is never too soon to start acquiring the skills that promote happiness, well-being, and resilience. It is never too late to shift the vantage point and focus on strengths instead of vulnerabilities. This latest edition of "Adolescent Coping: Promoting Resilience and Well-being" makes these themes clear. Theoretically grounded and empirically complex - those are the most distinguishing features of Prof. Frydenberg's open-minded inquiries into the foundations of young people's successful coping with ordinary and extraordinary life challenges. This is not only a portfolio of knowledge, wisdom, and methods but also a survival kit for researchers, teachers, caregivers, and parents. Krys Kaniasty, Professor of Psychology, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, USA, and Institute of Psychology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland In Adolescent Coping: Promoting Resilience and Well-being Dr Erica Frydenberg has brought together her vast experience as a psychologist, educator, researcher, and (grand) parent to provide an authoritative and up-to-date account of adolescent coping. Dr Frydenberg sheds vital light on the "classic" challenges that have faced all adolescents for centuries as they navigate to early adulthood. She also provides an important and most timely insight into the "modern" challenges facing adolescents-and how practitioners and families can best respond to these. Reflecting latest advances in psychology and education, this volume builds on previous editions by incorporating developments in positive psychology, neuroscience, and educational technology-while also traversing a diversity of adolescents and family structures that comprise our ever-changing society. Adolescent Coping is a valuable resource for scholars, practitioners, and families seeking to optimise the well-being of young people at a critical stage of human development. Andrew J. Martin, PhD, Scientia Professor and Professor of Educational Psychology, University of New South Wales, Australia In recent years, constructs related to coping, individual resilience, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, happiness and wellbeing have permeated the psychological, educational and sociological literature. The data connecting such constructs to mental health, academic performance, identity, emerging themes in technological and disruptive social influences, and biological and developmental prequelae has been growing. In adolescence, such factors coalesce to determine the transition to adulthood. With this tome, and with a panoply of research and years of experience, the author has addressed important research and applied issues with great clarity. This mammoth achievement will help researchers and practitioners alike advance our understanding of coping in adolescence. Professor Michael Kyrios, Vice President, Flinders University and Executive Dean, College of Education, Psychology & Social Work, South Australia, Australia --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
