About the Authors
  • During the transition from childhood to adulthood, adolescents face a unique set of challenges that accompany increased independence and responsibility. This volume combines cutting-edge research in the field of adolescence and the field of motivation and self-regulation to shed new light on these challenges and the self-regulation tools that could most effectively address them. Leading scholars discuss general principles of the adolescent period across a wide variety of areas, including interpersonal relationships, health, and achievement. Their interdisciplinary approach covers perspectives from history, anthropology, and primatology, as well as numerous subdisciplines of psychology – developmental, educational, social, clinical, motivational, cognitive, and neuropsychological. Self-Regulation in Adolescence stresses practical applications, making it a valuable resource not only for scholars, but also for adolescents and their family members, teachers, social workers, and health professionals who seek to support them. It presents useful strategies that adolescents can adopt themselves and raises important questions for future research.

    • Offers practical, research-based strategies to help individuals cope with the challenges of adolescence
    • Considers the adolescent period in relation to historical and cultural contexts, biological influences, and social constraints
    • Features contributions from prominent researchers across a variety of fields

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Bringing together leading scholars from the several disciplines needed to advance understanding of how self-regulation processes enable individuals to contribute to their positive behavior and health, both during adolescence and the entire life span, Professors Oettingen and Gollwitzer have created a work that uniquely advances theory, research, and application. Self-Regulation in Adolescence is required reading for scholars and practitioners interested in describing, explaining, and optimizing the role of self-regulation in positive youth development."
    Richard M. Lerner, Tufts University

    "A fantastic collection of articles by luminaries in developmental and motivation psychology … This is a must-read for anyone who studies, or cares about, how adolescents learn to align their thoughts, feelings, and actions with their personal goals."
    Angela Lee Duckworth, University of Pennsylvania

    "This wonderful book brings together top scholars from diverse fields and perspectives to address one of the most centrally important issues for understanding human life, namely how young people acquire and use the powers of self-regulation so as to change from being dependent children into adult citizens. From the details of brain processes to the grand sweep of historical change to comparisons across species, the perspectives represented in this book offer powerful and useful insights. Some adolescents fall prey to the problems and pitfalls of this period, while (most) others navigate it fairly successfully and emerge into adult life; this book illuminates why and how those things happen."
    Roy F. Baumeister, Florida State University
