Operating from a “team science” approach, our Center serves as a hub for the exchange of ideas from various research teams and networks.
The Center provides interdisciplinary perspectives to projects and research designed to advance the understanding of adolescent development. We then work to distill these findings in ways that are useful and accessible to those who directly affect the lives of these young people.
Framing the Developmental Science of Adolescence
The Center for the Developing Adolescent is partnering with the FrameWorks Institute to synthesize and communicate the developmental science of adolescence. Frameworks is creating a research-based Core Story of Adolescent Development—a shared set of reframing tools to expand public understanding of the complex social and scientific issues of adolescence.
FrameWorks previously crafted the Core Story of Early Childhood Development with the Harvard Center on the Developing Child. The Center for the Developing Adolescent will use this new adolescent core story to make the developmental science useful and accessible to those impacting the lives of young people.
