About the Author

Susan Harter, PhD, John Evans Professor of Psychology, Emerita, University of Denver, USA Foreword by William M. Bukowski, PhD, Concordia University Research Chair in Psychology and Director, Center for Research in Human Development, Concordia University, Quebec, Canada


"Harter surveys the struggle for a sense of identity and worth that individuals face from youth to old age. She offers an in-depth description of how families and cultures shape our self-concepts, and how so many of these adopted identities hamper personal growth and connectedness. On topics from motivation to mindfulness, this second edition offers both solid wisdom and new insights. Harter is truly one of developmental psychology's luminaries." - Richard M. Ryan, University of Rochester, USA "In Constructing the Self, Second Edition, Harter shows again why she has been the preeminent scholar in child and adolescent development for over four decades. aWeaving together new theoretical insights with a far-ranging review of diverse research literatures, Harter provides a masterful look at the processes through which cognitive changes and personal experiences combine to influence self-views, which in turn underlie broader patterns of social and psychological development. Harter's perspectives on adaptive and maladaptive trajectories of self development provide an important framework for promoting self-views that buttress positive relationships and psychological well-being." - Mark R. Leary, Duke University, North Carolina, USA
