Today’s teens and young adults (born after 1995) are part of iGen, the first generation to spend its entire adolescence with smartphones.
iGen adolescents spend more time communicating electronically and consume information online at a rapid pace. They also spend less time with their friends in person and are more likely to experience unhappiness, anxiety, and depression. iGen is also taking longer to assume both the responsibilities and pleasures of adulthood, is physically safer than any previous generation, and has more realistic expectations for the workplace. Why? Join internationally renowned researcher and author Dr Jean Twenge to explore iGen psychology and to consider what can be done to help iGen reach their potential.
