2013 Allen L. Edwards Psychology Lecture Series: Kevin King and Laurence Steinberg
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? 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.
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.
This free, public series is made possible by a generous bequest from Professor Allen L. Edwards.
Location: Kane Hall 130, UW Seattle
