    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.

Instilling resilience and self-control is essential in helping kids succeed, explains Dr. Laurence Steinberg, a world-renowned expert on adolescent psychology. Steinberg makes a strong, science-based case for changing how we parent, teach, and understand young people. 


    On this show, he’ll take us through science on the brain and motivation -- including his own ground-breaking research -- to bust widely held myths and explain how to support and guide kids to develop traits they need to be at their in their work and other endeavors and to live to their fullest.


    His book we'll be discussing: Age Of Opportunity -- Lessons From The New Science of Adolescence.

    sIgNOtHeTiMeS Tuesdays w Dr. Jones IS IT TIME TO LOSE THE "COOL POSE"?

    in Motivation

    It is this ‘cool’ factor that African-American men emit via their dress, walk, and talk that young Black boys desire during their adolescence and non-Black males realize that neither they, nor anyone who looks like them, will ever exhibit; at least not an authentic ‘cool’. At best, their expression of ‘cool’ will be a facsimile of something that brothers were doing a bunch of yesterdays ago. http://www.manhoodraceculture.com/2015/03/23/is-it-time-for-black-men-to-cool-it-on-being-cool/

    Understanding Relationships from a Young Adult Prospective

    in Social Networking

    The delayed entry into marriage that characterizes modern society raises questions about young adults' romantic relationship trajectories and whether patterns found to characterize adolescent romantic relationships persist into young adulthood. The current study traced developmental transitions into and out of romantic relationships from age 18 through age 25 in a sample of 511 young adults. The developmental antecedents of these different romantic relationship experiences in both distal and proximal family and peer domains were also examined. Analyses included both person-oriented and variable-oriented approaches. Findings show 5 distinct clusters varying in timing, duration, and frequency of participation in romantic relationships that range from those who had only recently entered into a romantic relationship to those who had been in the same relationship from age 18 to age 25. These relationship outcome trajectory clusters were predicted by variations in competence in early relationships with family and peers. Interpersonal experiences in family and peer contexts in early childhood through adolescence thus may form a scaffold on which later competence in romantic relationships develops. Findings shed light on both normative and nonnormative developmental transitions of romantic relationships in young adulthood.

    Teen Sexuality, ADD, and The Spectrum

    in Parents

    Teen Sexuality, ADD, and The Spectrum


    Guest: Wes Crenshaw, author I Always Want to Be Where I’m Not: Successful Living with ADD and ADHD and coauthor of the forthcoming Consent-Based Sex Education: Parenting Teens in an Internet Age.


    Dr. Wes Crenshaw says that a key point of adolescence is to organize one’s sexuality. For kids with ADD and those on the higher functioning autism spectrum, that can present unique challenges. If parents have a tough time dealing with sexuality in a typical teen, they may find themselves totally unprepared for what ADD and Asperger’s teens go through. That can include anything from impulsive sexual acting out to asexuality to fluidity in gender and sexual identity, and a lot more.


    Dr. Wes Crenshaw is Board Certified in Couples and Family Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology. 


    Dr. Wes is also coauthor of the forthcoming book Consent-Based Sex Education: Parenting Teens in an Internet Age.
