Age of Opportunity:
Lessons from the New Science of Adolescence
Adolescence now lasts longer than ever, and the adolescent brain is surprisingly malleable. These new discoveries make this time of life crucial in determining a person’s ultimate success and happiness.
From Dr. Steinberg’s book, “Age of Opportunity: Lessons from the New Science of Adolescence,” he will present:
- The teenage brain’s potential for change,
- The elongation of adolescence as a developmental stage,
- The implications of each for how we parent, educate, and understand young people.
Presenter: Distinguished Psychology Professor Laurence Steinberg, PhD, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA.
When: Wednesday, June 8 , 4:00 pm Eastern/ 1:00 pm Pacific
Duration: 60 minutes
