(p.12) 2 Adolescent Developmental Theories
Smart and Sassy

West Stevens Joyce

Oxford University Press

This chapter critiques the psychoanalytic theory of adolescent development as undergoing fundamental revisions influenced, in part, by feminist theory and developmental research. A developmental life-span thesis is explored for its relevancy to the phenomenological person-process-context model which clarifies identity as complex, integral to social contexts and evolving over the life span. Key developmental domains that characterized the adolescent trajectory are defined. Maturational tasks and developmental markers are clarified in each domain.

Keywords:   self-efficacy, intersubjectivity, ecological systems, identity complexity, psychoanalytic theory, phenomenology, developmental domains, life-span
