The New Science of Adolescence: Understanding Risky Behavior, Part 2 - 2013
Adolescence is a time of change and maturation, but with that growth comes risky behaviors like alcohol and drug use and dangerous sexual behavior. What can be done to promote positive behavior among adolescents? Laurence Steinberg will discuss these questions as part of “The New Science of Adolescence: Understanding Risky Behavior.” The speaker will look at recent studies that explain unsuccessful efforts to change behavior and what can be done to curb dangerous decisions.
