Development in Adolescence

Purpose The purpose of this assignment is to support the social worker who must support the teen’s growth, development, and independence while acknowledging the interdependence among the individual, family, and social factors. Adolescence usually can start between the ages of 10-12 and continue to the ages between 18-22. This age range varies because of the various biopsychosocial changes and possible issues the adolescent and their family may incur. During this life span period, the client may employ issues that may affect this stage of development. Further, the adolescent continues to grow rapidly physically and cognitively. In addition, the onset of puberty, sexual maturity, and development into adulthood is prevalent during the adolescence stage. Furthermore, the adolescents at this stage are developing their sense of identity and independence from their parents, yet, their parents are legally obligated to care for them. Social workers can encounter many complex challenges when working with adolescents and their families due to ethical and legal challenges. Therefore, the social worker must support the teen’s growth, development, and independence while acknowledging the interdependence among the individual, family, and social factors.
