Summary Adolescent Coping provides a clear and comprehensive account of the latest thinking on coping, illustrated throughout by the voices of young people. Erica Frydenberg examines how young people cope with a range of life problems, and considers the coping styles of particular groups, such as the gifted and those with an illness. She also looks at the measurement of coping, how we learn to cope, and such areas as social support and depression. Adolescent Coping will be of interest to practitioners and students of psychology, social work, sociology, education and youth and community work, as well as to an audience of parents and adolescents
