Time is as essential as the air we breathe, yet research on time perspective—how we think and feel about the past, present, and future—has yet to examine the construct from adolescence to adulthood. In this webinar, we report on a Special Issue of Research in Human Development that introduces time perspective as a multidimensional, developmental, and modifiable construct. Then, four studies on the topic are presented that include adolescents, young adults, middle-aged adults, and older adults. This research incorporates diverse participants and age-specific outcomes. Collectively, this work sets the stage for the next era of research on time perspective.
