ABSTRACT

The stated purpose of this book is "to provide practical information related to physical, cognitive, and psychological growth during adolescence and to relate these areas of growth or change to illnesses and handicapping conditions." Dr Daniel has filled his stated purpose well.

Part one, "Adolescence in Context," provides important background information. Myths that adolescents constitute a homogeneous group are dispelled. Students of adolescent health care require the basic information that Daniel provides about the medical rights of adolescents to fulfill their medical responsibility knowledgeably to their young patients. The section on the major developmental tasks of adolescence is a refreshing new approach to material that has been reviewed in many other publications.

The last section, "Physicians, Parents and Adolescents," written by Dr and Mrs Daniel, provides information about parenthood that is unique. Pediatricians may not consider the impact of developmental phases of the parents of adolescents on the developing adolescent.
