Adolescence is a crucial time for the development of social identity. Some young people ease effortlessly into friendships with their peers whilst others experience the pain of rejection or become involved with antisocial groups or gangs.<BR> <EM>Social Networks and Social Influences in Adolescence</EM> is divided into three parts, part one examines the nature of peer groups in different settings including classroom groups and gangs, and examines the influence of these groups on individuals. Part two explores young people's behaviour in the wider social environment and the implications of social acceptance or rejection for academic motivation, aggression and health risk behaviour. Finally, part three describes how professionals can support adolescents in building social attachments, giving practical examples of how this is being done in various communities. <EM>Social Networks and Social Influences in Adolescence</EM> will prove invaluable for students and professionals working with young people.
