Example text

Why, for example, do many youths exhibit a strong desire to achieve autonomy from their parents during this period?  Piaget's (1950; see also Flavell, 1963) cognitive developmental theory, for example, focuses more narrowly on cognitive development, and other theories provide even more specific focus on, for example, the development of conduct disorders or problems of substance abuse.  This distinction has some implications for the way we view the behavior of adolescents and for the development of intervention strategies and assessment tools.

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.  Similarly, Hoge and Andrews (1992) and Loeber, Keenan, Lahey, Green, and Thomas (1993) raised questions about the correspondence among a number of clinically and empirically derived definitions of the conduct disorder construct (also see Kagan, 1988).

However, the psychoanalytic approach must be considered out of fashion in contemporary psychology, and its influence is more indirect than direct.  First, all of these theories have emphasized the role of environmental experiences in development and have assigned a lesser role to genetic explanations. Second, these theorists have generally encouraged a focus on observable behaviors and have avoided the use of inferred constructs reflecting underlying dynamics.  In recent years many working within this behaviorist tradition have become more flexible in their approach, and these traditional positions have been compromised at times.
