Abstract

The term adolescence, which is currently used to indicate the human development period embracing the puberty years, is getting more and more a stereotype connotation. Adults are inclined to practically apply the social construction of the adolescence concept projecting on the young people the images linked to the adolescent crisis. The crisis, term which derives from the greek word 'to garble, to sift', can indicate in the young man the positive dynamics leading the adolescent to consider each proposal as his own, to discuss all what he meets to find a correspondence with himself. The experience of his own identity can arise from the comparison. It is interesting then to know the teenagers experience because it becomes a judgement on all they meet, on their daily reality. The aim of this work is to describe the experience of the adolescent from the protagonist point of view. In particular, this work wants to retrace the signals of the crisis which the young and very young - people are living inside the several environments of their daily experience: their family, themselves, the opposite sex, the school, the group of friends, the country in which they live. Through their descriptions are individuated the terms that they intend to use to sift their experience, as well as the criteria used to evaluate their satisfaction/dissatisfaction and their preferred experiences.
