"The book is a rich resource of theory, research and practical common sense. Examination of adolescence through a focus on coping enables topics of real interest and importance to be considered, so what we have in this book is, essentially, a new and creative way to look at adolescence. This is a scholarly work of significance, and the author is to be congratulated on the depth and breadth of her research and scholarship." - Susan Moore, Professor of Psychology, Swinburne University of Technology "Dr. Frydenberg has written a comprehensive book that will enable mental health professionals to create assessment-to-interventions links for youth to learn and practice coping. The comprehensiveness, integrative nature, and scientific base of this book are impressive, distinctive features." -Sandra L. Christenson, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Minnesota "Erica Frydenberg's book on Adolescent Coping: Advances in Theory, Research and Practice provides an exceptionally clear and useful summary of the extensive scholarship on this topic. Its contents will be of interest to a wide range of persons interested in adolescents, including practitioners and scholars." - Thomas Oakland, Professor, University of Florida and President, International Foundation for Children's Education
