2013 Allen L. Edwards Psychology Lecture Series: Kevin King and Laurence Steinberg
Kane Hall 130, UW Seattle

Kevin King & Laurence SteinbergAdolescence 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? Kevin King and Laurence Steinberg will discuss these questions as part of The New Science of Adolescence: Understanding Risky Behavior. The speakers will look at recent studies that explain unsuccessful efforts to change behavior and what can be done to curb dangerous decisions.

Kevin King is an assistant professor in the University of Washington's Department of Psychology. Laurence Steinberg is a professor of psychology at Temple University.

The eighth annual Allen L. Edwards Psychology Lecture Series will spotlight "The Science of Psychology in the Real World." This popular series brings notable psychologists to the University of Washington to co-present with faculty from the UW Department of Psychology. Together they will examine the real-world impacts of research in the fields of nature, adolescence, and the legal system. Learn more about the 2013 series.
