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. In this lecture, Laurence Steinberg, one of the world’s leading authorities on adolescence, will discuss the teenage brain’s potential for change, the elongation of adolescence as a developmental stage, and the implications of each for how we parent, educate, and understand young people.
Laurence Steinberg, Ph.D., is the Distinguished University Professor and Aura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology at Temple University. An internationally recognized expert on psychological development during adolescence, Dr. Steinberg is the author of 17 books, including Age of Opportunity: Lessons From the New Science of Adolescence.
