Problems in Adolescence


Adolescence Problems in School

The skills and talents of qualified child psychologists extend to youngsters of all ages – adolescents included. In fact, adolescence can be one of the most challenging of all developmental periods in life. Not quite an adult, though certainly not a child – a transition period that proves somewhat problematic for most people. However, there will always be those for whom these difficult years present more than just the usual growing-pains. From drug abuse to eating disorders to any number of social and emotional issues, teenagers and adolescents are susceptible to a wide spectrum of adolescence problems in school and at home. Which is precisely why the professional child psychologist must give equal priority to this critically important developmental stage.

This advanced tutorial has been designed for anyone looking to build a deeper knowledge of the most common social, personal and educational problems of adolescence. Explore teenage drug abuse and the process of becoming drug-free, along with common eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia nervosa. Study the potential causes of these and other teenage problems in school and at home, along with their proactive prevention and/or treatment where identified.
