Example text

Social learning theory, for example, searches for the causes of behavior in the learning experiences of the individual, and cognitive­developmental theory, although acknowledging a role for environmental experiences, places primary emphasis on the impact of internal maturational forces.  This is reflected, first, in efforts to incorporate a broader range of interacting variables into the theoretical and empirical analyses.  The transactional nature of this theoretical formulation is illustrated by the hypothesis of a reciprocal relation between mood and hormonal forces.

On the other hand, when we examine individual assessment instruments we see that a wide variety of other constructs have been developed for describing problematic behavior in adolescents.  It is worth noting here, however, some general problems associated with these efforts.  However, it is an important one, and I have occasion to return to the issue in later chapters.  Thus, instead of hyperactive, the individual might be characterized as at the 90th percentile (relative to some normative group) on a continuum of hyperactivity.

It is also a view that suggests a more serious attitude toward adolescent problems than the previous type of position.  However, this represents an unsatisfactory approach because of the problem of identifying truly representative normative groups and because it confuses atypical and problematic behavior. , depression, hyperactivity, substance abuse). These are defined as dysfunctions or abnormal behaviors to the extent that they interfere with or impair the functioning of the individual.  128) The key concepts in this approach do not relate to categories or dimensions of pathology but to attributes such as social competencies, emotional intelligence, maturity, and coping aptitudes.
