Teenagers undergo biological, cognitive, and social changes. Each of these changes interacts with the other developmental parameters and may affect outcomes in late adolescence and adulthood. Sequence, tempo, and timing of puberty all affect when changes in hormones, feelings, and behavior will emerge in children and adolescents. The psychiatrist managing child and adolescent patients should recognize stages of pubertal development and be able to provide counseling and information to patients and parents.
