1. Emerging adulthood Emerging adulthood refers to the period of development taking place from the late adolescent years to the mid-to-late twenties (i.e., 18–29), with a focus on the 18–25 age range (Arnett, 2000). This time frame presents unique challenges that are vastly different from both adolescence and adulthood. Emerging adulthood is thought to be unique to today’s industrialized societies, owing mainly to the delaying of marriage and parenting, as well as the high rates of post-secondary education enrolment (Arnett, 2000). This period is demographically diverse, and marked by personal exploration and growth (Arnett, 2000), and often results in attaining self-sufficiency (i.e., taking responsibility for oneself, independent decision making, etc.) (Arnett, 1997, 1998, 2000). Although emerging adulthood is filled with numerous opportunities for personal growth, individuals’ experiences are not always fulfilling or positive. The high rates of depression during emerging adulthood may be reflective of the expanding roles and unique challenges characteristic of this developmental period.
