Recently the lives of people from age 18 to 29 have changed so dramatically that a new stage of life has developed, emerging adulthood, that is distinct from both the adolescence that precedes it and the young adulthood that comes in its wake. Rather than marrying and becoming parents in their early twenties, most people in industrialized societies now postpone these transitions until at least their late twenties, and instead spend the time in self-focused exploration as they try out different possibilities in their careers and relationships. In Emerging Adulthood, Jeffrey Jensen Arnett identifies and labels, for the first time, this period exploration, instability, possibility, self-focus, and a sustained sense of being in limbo. An increasing number of emerging adults emphasize having meaningful and satisfying work to a degree not seen in prior generations. Marrying later and exploring more casual sexual relationships have created different hopes and fears concerning long-term commitments and the differences between love and sex. Emerging adults also face the challenge of defending their non-traditional lifestyles to parents and others outside their generation who have made much more traditional choices. In contrast to previous portrayals of emerging adults, Arnett's research shows that they are particularly skilled at maintaining contradictory emotions--they are confident while still being wary, and optimistic in the face of large degrees of uncertainty. As the demographics of American youth, the American workplace, and adulthood continue to evolve, Emerging Adulthood is indispensable reading for anyone wanting to understand the face of modern America.

This is the original book presenting the theory of emerging adulthood, which offered a new conception of development from the late teens through the twenties. The book presents emerging adulthood as a new life stage that has arisen over the past half century in developed countries, and in which explorations and instability are the norm. For this tenth anniversary edition, all the chapters have been updated, and three new ones have been added, on media uses, social class issues, and problems. The other chapters cover a wide range of topics in the lives of emerging adults.

The transition from adolescence to adulthood has undergone significant changes in recent decades. Unlike a half century ago, when young people in industrialized countries moved from adolescence into young adulthood in relatively short order at around age 20, now the decade from the late teens to the late twenties is seen as an extended time of self-focused exploration and education in pursuit of optimally fulfilling relationships and careers. Recognition of this new period is stronger than ever, but an important question remains: should emerging adulthood be considered a developmental stage, or a process? In Debating Emerging Adulthood: Stage or Process? two pairs of developmental psychologists take sides in a debate that is central to the very concept of emerging adulthood. Arnett and Tanner argue that as young people around the world share demographic similarities, such as longer education and later marriage, the years between the ages 18 and 25 are best understood as entailing a new life stage. However, because the experiences of emerging adults worldwide vary according to cultural context, educational attainment, and social class, these two scholars suggest that there may not be one but many different emerging adulthoods. An important issue for this burgeoning area of inquiry is to explore and describe this variation. In contrast, Hendry and Kloep assert that stage theories have never been able to explain individual transitions across the life course; in their view, stage theories-including the theory of emerging adulthood-ought to be abolished altogether, and explanations found for the processes and mechanisms that govern human change at any age. This engaging book maps out the argument of "stage or process" in detail, with vigorous disagreements, conflicting alternatives, and some leavening humor, ultimately even finding some common ground. Debating Emerging Adulthood is an absolute must-read for developmental psychologists as well as anyone interested in this indisputably important time of life.

Praise for Big Questions,Worthy Dreams "The things at stake in this tenth anniversary edition are even more profound and urgent than they were the first time around. This is not a little story about young people. It is a big story about humanity and the persistent quest for meaning and purpose. . . . the key is mentorship, and the payoff should be big—for all of us." —RICHARD A. SETTERSTEN JR., coauthor, Not Quite Adults: Why 20-Somethings Are Choosing a Slower Path to Adulthood, and Why It's Good for Everyone "Scholarly, wise, elegant, and deeply insightful, this book is . . . for all who work with people in the awe and angst-filled years between 18 and 32. . . . Upcoming generations have fateful choices to make that we need them to take up faithfully and fully awake. Parks, a master teacher, lights the way—theirs and ours." —DIANA CHAPMAN WALSH, president emerita, Wellesley College; board chair, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard "No one who cares deeply about people in their twenties should be without this book. In Sharon Daloz Parks's lyrical company we learn so much more about their biggest possibilities—and our own." —ROBERT KEGAN, author, In Over Our Heads; professor, Harvard Graduate School of Education "Parks's clear voice … is simultaneously that of a scholar, clinician, ethicist, and priest—that of a rare and capable generalist who can nurture both teachers and students … [and] reveal the architecture of the process by which we merge the questions of ultimate reality with the immediate needs and duties of our generation." —JANET COOPER NELSON, chaplain of the university, Brown University " . . . [A] valuable resource for parents, professors, administrators, employers, and all others who care about emerging adults and want to see them thrive." —JEFFREY JENSEN ARNETT, Clark University; author, Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from the Late Teens Through the Twenties

The delayed onset of maturity from adolescence to adulthood is gaining the considerable attention of scholars, not to mention that of the parents and the young adults themselves. The chapters in this volume examine the experiences of numerous individuals in their 20s and early 30s – as well as parents and employers – the end result of which is a finely nuanced, research-based portrait of today’s aging adolescents and the increasingly high hurdles they must jump to reach full-fledged adulthood. The chapters of Emerging and Young Adulthood: Multiple Perspectives, Diverse Narratives: Feature scores of narratives told by research subjects in their own words. Represent a broad racial and ethnic cross-section of subjects. Include the experiences of working class individuals, a population that has been ignored in previous studies. Pinpoint specific clinical issues relating to this generation’s behavioral patterns. Challenge much of the conventional wisdom about emerging and young adults. This volume reaches beyond facile "Gen X" and "quarterlife crisis" constructs to reveal the many diverse voices of young adults – their attitudes toward life, work, relationships, peers, and identities – and incorporates the diverse perspectives of parents and employers. It is a must-have resource for developmental, school, and counseling psychologists and therapists as well as for researchers and graduate-level students. _____________________________________________________________________ "Varda Konstam has written a fascinating and compelling book about the lives of young people in the process of crossing over from an unsettled emerging adulthood to a more stable young adulthood. Using the rich materials from her interviews, she provides insights on a wide range of topics in their lives. A special strength of the book is that she obtained interviews not only from the young people themselves but from their parents and employers. Anyone interested in the lives and futures of today’s emerging adults will enjoy and learn from this book." Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, Clark University, Author of 'Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from the Late Teens Through the Twenties' "Konstam makes a strong case that there are unique qualities to the contemporary transition to adulthood. And the author articulates the significant cultural, economic, and demographic patterns that uniquely affect the trajectories of this generation's emerging adults. A thoughtful case is made for the tasks of balancing aspirations and expectations in this cohort as well as choices to be made and relevant constraints. The use of narratives from individuals transitioning to adulthood adds immensely to the richness and value of this book." Barbara Tinsley, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences, Arizona State University
