Sample text

It is the latter type of theory that has probably had the greatest influence in the analysis of adolescent behavior and the writings of Bandura (1986) and Mischel (1984) have been most instrumental in developing the orientation.  The third process is that behavior is explained in terms of reciprocal determinism; this is the notion that the interaction between individual and the environment is a two­way street: Social forces do have an impact on the individual, but the individual also influences the environment.

Many of the interview and rating techniques examined in subsequent chapters are based on constructs derived through these empirical procedures.  The different approaches have often yielded very different constructs and even within approaches there are often inconsistencies in the way constructs are defined.  Problems in applying this system are discussed in later chapters. 2 lists the clinical disorders relevant to adolescents identified in DSM­IV, including disorders specific to childhood and adolescence as well as disorders primarily associated with adulthood that may sometimes be diagnosed in adolescents.

Washington, DC: Author.  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.
