Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Puberty, Health and Biological Foundations. It needs to be at least 1250 words. There is no single event that indicates the beginning of adolescence, rather this period is composed of a set of transitions or changes that happen gradually and transform many features of the individual’s behavior, development, and relationship (Moretz, 2007).
Adolescence phase is widely considered by the psychological establishment to be reckless and risk-taking which can direct the individual to a number of crimes and accidents, but psychologists believe that this risk-taking behavior is biologically driven and caused by the social and emotional part of the brain. The transitions that an individual goes through are physical, biological, and emotional etc. Adolescence is related to all of these transitions. When a person changes biologically or physically, his emotions and thinking also transform accordingly.
The .biological transition .of adolescence or .puberty is perhaps the most salient sign that adolescence has begun. Puberty refers to all the physical changes that occur in the growing girl or boy as the individual passes from childhood into adulthood. The timing of physical maturation varies widely depending on the environment, culture, lifestyle, eating habits, genes etc. There are different stages after which an individual enters into the adulthood and these stages are different for both the sexes.
For many years, psychologists believed that puberty was stressful for young people. It is believed that any difficulties related to adjusting to puberty are minimized if adolescents know what changes are expected and have positive attitudes toward them. Although the immediate impact of puberty on the adolescent’s self-image and .mood .may be very modest, the .timing .of physical maturation does affect the teens social and .emotional development .in important ways. .
