Adolescence is a transitional period, it does not mean a break with or a change from what has gone before but rather a passage from one stage of development to another. Children when they go from childhood to adulthood; must put away childish things and they must also learn new patterns of behaviour and attitudes to replace those they have abandoned.
Resilience is the ability to successfully cope with change or misfortune. Resilient individuals have confidence in their ability to preserve because they have done so before and anticipate rather than fear change and challenges. Emotional competence is described as the essential social skills to recognize, interpret and respond constructively to emotions in you and others. Resilience and emotional competence plays a crucial role in the adolescent period for their mental development in establishing new attitudes, values and interest to create their own identity.
This book helps the readers to find out how the role of resilience and emotional competence influence in the identity development of the adolescents.
