Title: Adolescence in a Global Context
Description: This seminar is designed to provide an overview of adolescent health and development and emerging adulthood in national and international contexts. Drawing from a range of disciplines including anthropology, public health, psychology, and family studies, we will critically examine existing research on adolescent/ emerging adult health and discuss underlying assumptions, research methodologies, and findings. Topics include: the social contexts of development; online identity and new technologies; body image and dieting; nutrition, obesity and physical activity; adolescent sexuality; teen pregnancy; HIV/AIDs and STDs; tobacco and alcohol use; mental health; and violence. Gender-sensitive and age appropriate prevention and intervention strategies will be discussed in relation to these topics.
