LILLO ESPINOSA, José Luis. Growth and behaviour in the adolescence. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2004, n.90, pp.57-71. ISSN 0211-5735.
The characteristics of growing and behaviour in the adolescence are described, emphasizing its three fundamental characteristics: the adolescence as a grief of the infantile world, as a physical problematical renovation established in the childhood and his resolution and finally as a stage full of new expectancy, illusions and vital discoveries. The significant corporal changes are analysed in the configuration of his definitive identity as an adult. The tendency or emotional movements that are present in the adolescence are related, both the regressive and the progressive ones.
