Dealing with Development

Peer-Impact Diagnosis and Therapy

This chapter describes four domains of adolescent development: physical, cognitive, emotional, and social. Physical development is immediately visible, whereas cognitive, emotional, and social development are not and become evident only in words and actions. Emotional development occurs right alongside both cognitive and physical development. It is the internally felt sensation that responds to physical and cognitive changes. Social development can be defined as comprehending which behavior is appropriate in different social settings. It becomes complete when physical, emotional, and cognitive development are integrated and all four are combined. This type of development is evident in appropriate adult social behavior. This chapter examines the controversy regarding how to categorize adolescence in psychology before discussing child and adolescent development. It also considers children's conceptions about friendship.

Keywords:   adolescent development, physical development, social development, emotional development, cognitive development, social behavior, adolescence, psychology, children, friendship
