AGENDA

December 14, 2009

8:45 amWelcome and Overview of the Day
Rosemary Chalk, Director, Board on Children, Youth, and Families

Laurence Steinberg, Ph.D., Temple University (Committee Chair)
9:00 amAdolescent Behavior, Risk-Taking, and Public Policy

J. David Hawkins, Ph.D., University of Washington

Kathryn Monahan, Ph.D., University of Washington

Harold Holder, Ph.D., Prevention Research Center of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation
  • What is known about the nature and scope of co- occurring problems in adolescent risk behavior?
  • What is known about the developmental specificity of this covariation?
  • How can broad-scale public policy prevent adolescent risk behavior?
Committee Discussants
Laurie Chassin, Ph.D., Arizona State University
Robert Wm. Blum, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., Johns Hopkins University

Discussion and Q & A
10:00 amThe Biology of Adolescent Risk Behavior

Linda Patia Spear, Ph.D., Binghamton University
  • How is our understanding of adolescent behavior informed by consideration of the biology of adolescence?
  • To what extent and in what ways is risky behavior biologically driven, and how does consideration of the biology of adolescent development inform our understanding of adolescent risk behavior, individual differences in these behaviors, and their consequences?
Committee Discussants
B. J. Casey, Ph.D., Weill Medical College of Cornell University
Daniel S. Pine, M.D., National Institute of Mental Health
Elizabeth J. Susman, Ph.D., The Pennsylvania State University

Discussion and Q & A
11:00 amContextual Influences on Adolescent Risk Behavior

School
Stephanie Jones, Ph.D., Harvard Graduate School of Education

Community
Deborah Gorman-Smith, Ph.D., Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago

Mass Media
Blair Johnson, Ph.D., The University of Connecticut
  • What key mechanisms or features of these influences uniquely affect adolescent risk behavior?
  • Can changes in certain contextual factors in these contexts reduce or prevent risky behavior?
  • What are the most salient proximal and distal factors in these contexts that affect risk taking in adolescence?
Committee Discussants
B. Bradford Brown, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin James J. Jaccard, Ph.D., Florida International University Marc A. Zimmerman, Ph.D., University of Michigan

Discussion and Q & A
1:45 pmDiscussion: Integration in the Science of Adolescence

Committee Facilitators
Laurence Steinberg
Marc A. Zimmerman, Ph.D., University of Michigan
  • What overarching lessons about the genesis of risky behavior in adolescence can be gleaned from the morning’s presentations? How can we integrate knowledge across levels and domains of influence?
  • What are important next steps in the science agenda? What is not known and needs to be known? Should our approach to the study of adolescent risk behavior change, and if so, in what ways?
  • What are the implications of what has been presented today for interventions?
Discussion and Q & A
3:30 pmClosing Remarks and Next Steps
