IED 520 - Adolescent Psychology in a Cross-Cultural Setting


This course is designed to provide students with a broad overview of several areas of adolescent development in different cultures, with an emphasis on the USA and Mexico. It is based on a social-constructionist perspective that considers “adolescence” as a category, whose characteristics and meaning are created by a social group, so it is subject to much variation between cultures. Students will get acquainted with current research on adolescents, particularly with phenomenological studies on teen’s life experiences, as well as with some contemporary literature on how to best work with teenagers.
