Rona Carter, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan

  • Thursday February 20, 2020 from 4:15 pm–6:00 pm
  • Foster Auditorium, Paterno Library

Hosted by the Child Study Center

Pubertal development is a salient individual change for both the child experiencing it and the adults and peers in their immediate social environment. This talk will explore how different aspects of puberty are related to shifts in interpersonal experiences during this developmental period. Specifically, how pubertal timing and tempo, seeing oneself as off-time, and the ways that adults and peers respond to pubertal growth contribute to changes in interpersonal relationships and experiences. Reception to follow in adjacent Mann Assembly Room. The public is cordially invited. For more information, email ChildStudyCenter@psu.edu.
