16th Biennial Meeting of the European Association for Research on Adolescence (EARA)

Ghent, Belgium, September 12-15, 2018
The overall theme of the conference is “Nurturing adolescent growth”. Starting from a positive view on adolescence and recognizing that adolescence is a not only a period of risk but also an ‘age of opportunity’, we invite papers, posters and symposia that highlight positive youth development. Although we welcome contributions on any topic relevant to adolescent development (including risk for psychopathology), we particularly call for research dealing with features of adaptive development (e.g., prosocial behavior, adequate emotion regulation, personality maturity, social competence, identity strength, resilience) and contextual support for such positive development for all youth (e.g., high-quality parenting, supportive teacher-adolescent relationships, secure peer and romantic relationships).
 
Registration information is also online. Soon the online registration tool will be available:  www.eara2018.eu.
Deadline for abstract submission is March 1, 2018.
