Social Research on Children and Adolescents
Ethical Issues

January 1992 | 210 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The important issues of what theory and research on human development can teach us about adolescents' vulnerability, how to reduce that vulnerability and under what circumstances parental consent does not protect children's rights are considered in this volume.

The editors skilfully bridge the gap between those volumes which set out legal requirements that govern research on minors and the research methodology literature on adolescent psychology.
