Age of Opportunity: Lessons from the New Science of Adolescence on Self-Regulation and Resilience

A session at Learning & the Brain 42: The Science of Character

Saturday 14th November, 2015

10:00am to 11:00am (EST)

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.
