Adolescent Concerns Through Own Eyes

Sushila Singhal (Author) U.N.B. Rao (Author)
Synopsis Adolescent Concerns Through Own Eyes represents a glowing tribute to the adolescents – the future citizens of the country. It makes a very unique contribution to the understanding of adolescents’ problematic concerns from their own perspectives. It enriches the literature in psychology, education, social and behavioural sciences. There are very few books on adolescence in general, and hardly any in India. In India persons remain children for long and then graduate directly into adulthood. Adolescence, though meaning to emerge, does not emerge, and the society puts them at high risk by ignoring them. The authors of this systematic research have discharged their social and academic responsibilities extremely well, by social and academic future agenda, and by identifying the magnitude and extent of the problems they are concerned about in their financial, academic, psychological, health, family and social domains of functioning. They need to be understood and helped through various interventions to be designed for themselves, and for parents and teachers and teachers. The book should be seen as a valuable resource by policy makers, planers, academicians and practitioners alike, all those interested in taking the challenge to work with vibrant and energy charged adolescents.

Dr. U.N.B.

As a Police Officer, Dr. Rao held a number of important assignments, including two special assignments abroad. His love and attention for adolescents, compounded by the accidental death of his only son aged 20 years, led to the start of Urivi vikram Charitable Trust which has been working with a missionary zeal to promote welfare and development of adolescents through their programmes of student counseling and career guidance; and Shakti: Life Skills for out-of-school adolescents and under-achievers. Dr. Rao combined his professional zeal with his mission for adolescents and did his doctoral work from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi on topic “Impact of Proactive Policing Approach on Attitude of Adolescent Students in Metropolitan Cities” (1998-2000). He is a member of the Working Group of the Planning Commission of India on ‘Adolescents’ and member of Core Group of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports and the UNFPA.
