G. Stanley Hall
G. Stanley Hall (1844 – 1924) is known as the Father of Adolescence. His work influenced adolescent themes in psychology, popular culture, and education. Hall coined the term “storm and stress” to describe the period of adolescence. This period is characterized by a teenager’s conflict with parents, mood disruptions, and engagement in risky behavior. Although the concept of storm and stress is not accepted as a universal phenomenon in adolescents, psychologists recognize that this phenomenon is most likely to take place during adolescence.
