Beyond Adolescence traces the lives of adolescents and youth from the late 1960s into the late seventies and early eighties. It is unusual because of the period of time in which the study took place, as well as because of the portion of the lifespan it covers--early adulthood. Concerned with understanding the role of problem behavior in young adulthood and the factors that influence it, the study also traces outcomes on young adulthood of earlier involvements in problem behavior, with an emphasis on personality and social environment. The research extends and tests the theoretical framework that guided the study--Problem Behavior Theory--and shows its usefulness for understanding young adult problem behavior and development.

Industry Reviews

'... an important sequel to the pioneering work of Richard and Shirley Jessor presented over 15 years ago ... this work presents important data and analyses regarding crucial topics of drug use, problem behaviors, and psychosocial development from adolescence into young adulthood and provides some informative tests and expansion of problem behavior theory into young adulthood. This volume is an important contribution to the literature and a must for all students and researchers of these topics.' Contemporary Psychology
