Religion and spirituality in adolescent development - Chapter in book - 2009

This chapter marks the first time that the topic of adolescent religiousness and spirituality has appeared in the Handbook of Adolescent Psychology . Although significant attention was devoted to the religious development of adolescents in the early part of the twentieth century (e.g., Hall, 1904 ), and again in the 1960 and 1970s, this topic was relatively neglected for much of the latter part of the twentieth century. It is only relatively recently that renewed interest in the topic of religious and spiritual development during adolescence has developed within the developmental sciences
