Adolescence: The Prolonged Transition

Synopsis
Uses historical and cross-cultural comparisons to question whether the view of adolescence as a period of increased autonomy, identity development, and risk-taking is merely a social construction. Discusses biological aspects of puberty and the adolescent’s emerging sexuality, showing a Guatemalan teenager preparing for ‘Carneval’ and a Cameroon youth undergoing a traditional puberty rite.
