Over the past decades, the Albanian society has faced several sensitive and considerable challenges affecting all its aspects. Significant changes on macro and micro levels have an inevitable impact on the paths the individual development takes. The diverse and rapid social, cultural, technological, economic and demographic changes of recent years pose new challenges – and offer new possibilities – for adolescents and young adults. Adolescence and young adulthood are stages in life characterized by intense changes. Hence, how does the nature of adolescence and young adulthood itself change? When social contexts become radically different, does it lead to a fundamental transformation of social and psychological developmental processes in adolescents and young adults? The individuals undergoing these societal changes represent a special focus for researchers who offer empirical evidence to the attention of professional and academic development. We invite you to provide your scientific contribution to this conference.
