adolescent psychology is often called the most controversial, rebellious, fickle.And not without reason, because in this period people already out of childhood, but has not yet become an adult.He looks into his inner world, to learn a lot about themselves, develop critical thinking, does not want to listen to anyone, its essence rebels.
transitional age, its signs
Psychology of adolescence and youth - difficult to explain the phenomenon.During this period, the child beginning to produce hormones, mainly thyroid and pituitary.Blood teenager supersaturated them, because this significantly add children in growth and have the first signs of an adult.
In boys, this process begins in 13-15 years.They are significantly add to growth, hair growth on the face and the body increases.And adolescent psychology opens their first signs of puberty.They begin an erection, and therefore there is a strong interest in the opposite sex and some sexuality.In girls, this period begins two years earlier.Its manifestations are: the addition of growth, uneven formation of the body, increasing the hair, as well as female signs of puberty (monthly and begin growing breasts).
is noteworthy that the growth of teenagers is uneven.First, the head grows, then the limb: the feet and hands, then arms, legs, and torso last amenable.Because of this, the figure looks awkward teenager.
Describing adolescence, psychology distinguishes from "incomplete adults" are two types of crisis.This is a crisis of independence and lack of independence.
crisis is characterized by independence:
- expression of opinion;
- the desire to solve problems.
crisis of lack of independence - is:
- falling into childhood;
- unwillingness to solve something myself;
- craving for parents;
- no manifestation of the will.
crisis of lack of independence brings much worse consequences than it seems at first glance, as a major new growth, which becomes a teenager at that time, become independent.Only developmental psychology takes communication as a leading activity.That is why children try to spend more time with their peers.They often change the authority and there is a lot of new friends.Mind this is no longer a child but not yet an adult is quite unstable.It was during this period that he tries to know himself, delves into his inner world, whereas previously learned the only external.It becomes quite contradictory demands from other precise answers from the world - clarity.And if it does not receive a teenager, he rebels, he can laugh right now, but a minute later to cry.Due to the lack of understanding of the world, he often changes the mood.Everything that happens to him, the child interprets the negative side, because of which often falls into a deep depression.Teenager psychology keeps statistics, according to which people often do not see a way out, he feels it unnecessary to the world, so the majority of suicides occur in this age.
