Emerging Adulthood

In this activity we will examine the concept of “emerging adulthood.” Listen to the interview with an expert on developmental psychology at https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?fr=mcafee&p=jeffrey+arnett+emerging+adulthood+interview#id=1&vid=5f1b97d3c2e8b1e752b24f554e2dfb15&action=click

Next, take the inventory at http://www.midss.org/sites/default/files/inventory_of_the_dimensions_of_emerging_adulthood.pdf
Read about emerging adulthood at http://www.jeffreyarnett.com/articles/Arnett_2007_Socialization_in_Emerging_Adulthood.pdf .

What do you think of Arnett’s ideas? If you agree, why? If you disagree, why? How does culture factor into this concept? You might want to talk to someone who has recently immigrated to the US about this concept.
