About the Book :

In the current fast changing and modernising world, the interaction between the developed and the developing world is reflected in the changing behaviour of the adolescent in India. The Indian adolescent is betwixt and between traditionality and modernity. They, therefore, exhibit both old and new values. This has affected the interaction between the older and the younger generations. The latter tend to posit their behaviour on the idiomatic expression of the culture. The adolescent’s phylogenitic behaviour is the same all over the world; the differences are mainly in their ontogenetic thought and behaviour. The theoretical frameworks used in this book to explain the changing adolescent behaviour is drawn upon a number of theories such as Ericson’s lifecycle stages in which the adolescent stage is described as one of a well-formulated identity or a confused one; and the ecological systems theory of Bronfenbrenner in which he provides vivid explanations of behavioural changes as the growing adolescent moves from the micro to the macro ecological systems.
