Growing up in Adolescence Ontogenesis: the Theoretical and Methodological Basis of Research

Abstract: 

The article describes theoretical explanation of the empirical study of a teenager transiting to adulthood. The author puts emphasis on the problem of growing personality from childhood to adulthood during ontogenesis with such determinants of the integral development as the development of adulthood, maturity and understanding of the problems of self-realization and self-expression in the future. The paper analyses the idea of personal development and maturing teenager in terms of modern childhood and attempts to review the process of growing up as a special means of becoming the subject of social actions in the development system. It provides an explanation for the necessity of targeted development of a particular area of psychological knowledge and practice – the psychology of maturity aimed at studying maturing possibilities regarding psychological conditions. The research gives reasons for the importance of studying subjective perceptions of teenagers such concepts as «maturity», «adulthood». The attention is focused on the prospect of maturity concerning transformation of the social situation of adolescent children.
