Adolescent Psychiatry. XIV, 1987: The Mystery of Adolescence. Daniel Offer. Pp. 7-27.

Marianne Makman

The author, long a demystifier of "normal adolescent turmoil," presents more data from his own and others' research confirming that a great majority, perhaps eighty per cent, of adolescents from all social, economic, and national backgrounds go through adolescence with healthy self-image, strong goals and values, and good mastery of inner and outer worlds. On the other hand, the twenty per cent in distress are often overlooked as "going through normal turmoil," and thus receive grossly inadequate help with their psychological problems. Offer suggests that the dramatic increase in adolescent suicides noted through the 1960's and 1970's is now actually beginning to decline as the baby-boom generation has reached adulthood and some of the social and economic pressures of this adolescent overpopulation have declined.
