The transition to adulthood is characterized by new roles and obligations in interconnected fields such as education, career and family formation. The transition from youth to adulthood leads to growing maturity, which comes with expectations that the individual would take responsibility of their self, make independent decisions and become self-sufficient. During this time, young individuals face a variety of prospects and challenges that can have far-reaching consequences throughout the course of life. Education, employment, living arrangements, marriage, and parenting play a role in determining the developmental path of an individual. Significant shifts in social roles and duties can cause anxiety and can test an individual's ability to adapt. The transition from youth to adulthood is a process marked by rising social inequities, challenging economic choices and restrictions, ambiguity, and altering cultural and social expectations. Slow strategic transitions, family and other support are significant for the transition. This book is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex concepts related to the transition of youth. It will provide comprehensive knowledge to the readers.
