Teenagers - one minute they’re fine, the next they’re biting off your head! One day they make a great decision and the very next day, they make the worst one ever! Whether you work or live with them, we all wonder at some point, “What is wrong with them??!!” The Adolescent Brain workshop reveals the neuroscience behind the issues of Nature or Nurture, and why teenagers are one of the most challenging populations to work with. You’ll understand the scaffolding that supports their brain development as well as how stress and sleep affect them. You’ll learn why they’re so negatively impacted by things like drugs, alcohol and their cell phones and you will leave with a better understanding of what you can do to help them and their parents through the turbulent time that is adolescence.
