Roundtable #4 - Loneliness and Belonging in Emerging Adulthood - Moderated by Spencer Biel, PsyD (Live)
Emerging adults are reporting surging rates of loneliness and isolation, leaving many developmentally adrift and vulnerable to accumulating mental health troubles. This panel will consider how social turmoil, mistrust, pessimism, and polarization uniquely challenge young adults’ identity development, agency, and sense of belonging. Additionally, we will explore forms of engagement that encourage their social participation and harness their essential contributions to the world they are joining and helping.
