The articles in this special issue, and the practice and policy commentaries that accompany them, highlight distinctive contributions of psychological anthropology to understanding adolescence, and extend these understandings to the collaborative framing of practice and policy concerns. In consideration of pressing matters for adolescents that include mental health, poverty, sexual orientation, and global perspectives on well-being, the role of psychological anthropology in linking research, practice and policy must be multifaceted and collaborative in bringing together content, methods, and approaches that facilitate effective communication and engagement within and beyond the academy.
