Jeffrey Jensen Arnett received his PhD from the University of Virginia and did three years of postdoctoral work at the University of Chicago. From 1992-1998 he was Associate Professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Missouri.
For over twenty-five years he has conducted research on emerging adults concerning a wide variety of topics, involving diverse groups in the United States as well as Denmark and China. Dr Arnett’s primary scholarly interest is in “emerging adulthood,” the age period from the late teens to the mid-twenties (mainly ages 18-25).
Jeffrey Arnett recently founded the Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood (ssea.org), which sponsors a biennial conference and a journal, Emerging Adulthood. Other areas of Jeffrey’s research are media uses in adolescence, especially music and cigarette advertising, and risk behaviour in adolescence and emerging adulthood. He is also a research professor in the psychology department at Clark University and the author of Emerging Adulthood, the book that brought attention to this new stage of life.
Arnett is a frequent speaker worldwide at organisations devoted to family relations and therapy, parenting, social work, and college counselling and admissions.
He is a higher education “Rock Star” – articulate, well versed, and his research on Emerging Adulthood is captivating. He will energize your crowd and leave them talking for, not days, but months and years!
