Adolescent Brain Development
23/10/2023 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Adolescent Brain Development Bitesize course is aimed at parents, carers and professionals to give an insight into why teenagers may act the way they do.
The common question we have all asked our teenagers, “Why did you do that?!” Of course, we are often disappointed that they simply can’t provide a good response. The reason for this is because a teenager’s brain is still under construction. So, though teenagers may look and even talk like young adults, their brains are not always caught up. It is hoped that you will get a better understanding of how the adolescent brain works and the reason behind teenager behaviour.
This Adolescent Brain Development Bitesize will explore brain functions, the way this affects their current behaviour and how vital sleep is for adolescents during this time. Strategies on how we can help build a healthy brain in our teenagers will be shared along with useful tips and resources to help you and your adolescent.
