When They See Us: Interpersonal Experiences during the Pubertal Transition

Abstract: Pubertal development is a salient individual change for both the child experiencing it and the adults and peers in their immediate social environment.  In this talk, I will discuss how different aspects of puberty are related to shifts in interpersonal experiences during this developmental period. Specifically, how pubertal timing and tempo, seeing oneself as off-time, and the ways that adults and peers respond to pubertal growth contribute to changes in interpersonal relationships and experiences.
