IED 520 - Adolescent Psychology in a Cross-Cultural Setting

(Cr: 3)
This course is designed to provide students with a broad overview of several areas of adolescent development in different cultures. 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 adolescence, particularly with phenomenological studies on teen’s life experiences, as well as with some contemporary literature on how to best work with teenagers.
