As young adults move from adolescence into mature adulthood, figuring out who they are and what they want from life can be a stressful time. The most recent psychosocial, sociological, and biological research shows that young adults (ages 18-25) are still developing, and in a phase called “emerging adulthood,” where they are no longer adolescents, but not quite fully matured adults.

Do you have a family member who is between the ages of 18-25? Then don’t miss this lecture and come learn the science behind the challenges young adults face like developing identity, values, social relationships, life goals and much more. Understanding these unique stressors can often help those who might be struggling. Our psychologist experts will also touch on skills young adults can use to navigate these stressors and manage their emotional health as well as what parents can expect with the evolving relationship(s) with their young adult child(ren).
