From a psychoanalytic perspective, adolescence (as experienced in the West) has been likened to the early stages of pregnancy, a ‘deeply primitive state’ where the young person can neither be controlled by others nor entirely be ‘in control’ themselves. This psychoanalytic perspective on adolescence acknowledges that, as part of an acceleration of intellectual growth, great changes in brain development take place, which renders egocentricity characteristic of adolescent behaviour. This intellectual growth prioritises abstract thinking, which becomes the dominant modus operandi, while a comparable reduction in the capacity to be self-reflective and develop moral awareness takes place.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
