This webinar will focus on the adolescent brain and how it develops. It will explore why teenagers behave as they do, how they learn, and how they make decisions about their lives.

From previous attendees

"A very informative presentation. Jan Montgomery's wealth of experience and insight into the teenage brain was very interesting and there are many things I can take with me and put into practice when dealing with teenagers."

"The session really reminded me to take a step back and think about my own regulation and how that impacts my young people. It also was a good prompt to remind me how my young people might be processing and dealing with on going trauma (that I may not know about)."

"Very interesting stuff! Really enjoyed this. Great overview of 'the teenage brain' and a great reminder as to why young people approach, respond and act in certain ways...and as a result, what we can do to support them."
