Image and Identity Becoming the Person You Are by L. Kris Gowen, Molly McKennaPsychologists and educators believe that the primary task of adolescence is forming one's identity. Even if teens don't know the whole answer to the question of who they are, perhaps they will have a better understanding of all the things that might make up that answer and feel more comfortable becoming who they will be with the information and guidance this book offers.
'Who You Hang Out With,' 'You Body,' 'The Things You Do,'
'The Influences Around You.'
'people who drink don't just do stupid things, sometimes they do dangerous things'). The authors also try to show a teen's viewpoint, such as pointing out positive peer pressure ('you probably already knew your friends can be good for you')... VOYA ...useful information for research topics... -- Sherry Thompson, Flower Mound High School This guide for teenagers provides tools for exploring their developing identities. Some of the aspects of identity covered include family, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, friends, school interests, work, and aspirations.
