Sexuality in Adolescence
The Digital GenerationBook - 2016
Examines multiple perspectives, emphasizing social and health-related frameworks, but also covering biological and evolutionary approaches. Although the main focus is on normative development and healthy sexuality, the book does not marginalise sexual expression in adolescence, and maladaptive aspects of sexual development are also considered. Presents global research on many key issues of our time, including the impact of media and technology on adolescent sexuality, changes in adolescent sexual behaviors and beliefs, sexual risk taking, sex education, and teen pregnancy and abortion. Addresses the crucial issues of sexual diversity, sexual safety and sexual communication, including coercion, peer pressure and double standards. Sexuality in Adolescence aims to promote sexual wellbeing, and argues for the importance of the adolescent period as a time for engendering healthy sexual attitudes and practices.
