Featuring Keynote Speaker: DR. ABIGAIL BAIRD – Professor of Psychological Science on the Arnold Family Chair at Vassals College.Presenting The Experience Library: How Experience Shapes the Adolescent Brain
Dr. Baird is very interested in the larger idea of what adolescence actually is. She sees this period of tremendous and rapid neural development as a time of great opportunity to maximize what is going right and to ameliorate potential problems. She is interested in the emergence of identity and what factors shape this in the developing adolescent. Also critical here is the extent to which identity (even when immature) drives behavior in the adolescent.
