'psychological change on the part of younger people'.

I guess that 'psychological change of younger people' has the same meaning.
Can 'on the part of --' be replaced with 'of' ?I
Without 'on the part', is there any problem?

It does seem odd. 'On the part of' suggests that 'younger people' are the agent of change; but 'psychological change' is something you undergo.

Hi,

'psychological change on the part of younger people' makes it clear that the changes are coming from or being initiated by the younger people.

Best wishes, Clive

It cannot be replaced unless you want a change in meaning.

"psychological change on the part of younger people" means psychological change as far as younger people is concerned.

"psychological change of younger people" means young people is already having psychological changes on them

Hope it makes sense
