Drawing from more than ten years of work with hundreds of 20-something clients and students, clinical psychologist Dr. Meg Jay weaves the science of the 20-something years with compelling, behind-closed-doors stories from 20-somethings themselves in her book, “The Defining Decade.”
She’ll share some of that insight in a presentation at the University of South Carolina Russell House ballroom Tuesday, March 4. Her talk will take place 10-11:30 a.m. and is free and open to USC students, faculty and staff with valid Carolina Cards. Registration is recommended.
“Dr. Jay’s presentation will provide direct understanding about the college experience and why college advisers, educators and parents should encourage college students to make intentional decisions about, and assume ownership for, their own college experiences,” Vice President for Student Affairs Dennis Pruitt said.
In “The Defining Decade,” Jay shares what psychologists, sociologists, neurologists, reproductive specialists, human resources executives and economists know about the unique power of our 20s and how they change our lives. Jay illustrates that our 20s are a time when the things we do–and the things we don’t do–will have an enormous effect across years and even generations to come.
Watch Dr. Jay as she speaks about why the 20s matter and how to make the most of them, in her thought-provoking TED Talk.
