College During COVID: Lessons from the Science of Adolescence -- A FAN Webinar with Laurence Steinberg, Ph.D. and John Duffy

Colleges and universities across the country have struggled to decide whether to keep campuses open, offer online instruction exclusively, or institute some combination of the two. For this webinar, FAN has invited back Laurence Steinberg, Ph.D., Distinguished University Professor and the Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology at Temple University, to discuss how our understanding of adolescent development can and should inform this difficult decision. He presented two talks for FAN in 2014 for the release of his bestselling book Age of Opportunity: Lessons from the new Science of Adolescence.

Prof. Steinberg is a leading expert on adolescence and is the author of nearly 500 articles and essays on development during the teenage years, and the author, co-author, or editor of 17 books.

Prof. Steinberg will offer an overview of his research into the risk-taking behaviors of young adults and their capacity for self-control. PROGRAM UPDATE (10.12.20): Heidi Stevens is under the weather, and she has asked her podcast co-host, John Duffy, Psy.D., a highly sought-after clinical psychologist, bestselling author, podcaster, and parenting and relationship expert, to fill in. Duffy's weekly podcast with Heidi Stevens is called “On Purpose: The Heidi Stevens and Dr. John Duffy Podcast.”

This event will be recorded and available on the FAN website and YouTube channel.  Register HERE.

AFTER-HOURS EVENT: Attendees who purchase a copy of Dr. Steinberg's book The Age of Opportunity from FAN's partner bookseller The Book Stall are invited to attend an AFTER-HOURS event hosted by Dr. Steinberg and Dr. Duffy that starts after the webinar. Buy the book HERE.
