Conceptualization of Success in Young Adulthood

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Successful transition from childhood to adulthood is context and culture dependent. This article reviews concepts of mental health and theoretic constructs of successful adulthood that suggest intentional policies and practices are developed with a specific vision of success. Parents, educators, mental health professionals, and policymakers need to be cognizant of their assumptions and essential roles in these processes. The early development of illness may disrupt and alter the timelines of different developmental milestones and trajectories. It is important to discuss what “success” looks like with transitional age youth and their family members, because treatment approaches may adapt accordingly.
