Summary
The understanding and study of fathers has traditionally assumed that fathers, compared to mothers, are less involved with their children. Fathers and Adolescents presents a different approach that focuses on the distinctive role of fathers in the lives of their adolescents, especially their role in adolescents' attainment of developmental tasks. Drawing on a variety of disciplines, Shmuel Shulman and Inge Seiffge-Krenke examine the relationships of fathers to their adolescents in the context of a changing society. They find that fathers interact in ways that are different from those of mothers, but that are important for both normal and disturbed adolescent development. Psychopathological, aggressive and incestuous behaviour is considered as well as the role of the father in more ideal circumstances
