25/10/2019 09:30






About this event

This workshop 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. You will learn how best to engage in these areas to ensure our young people receive the support they need to become healthy and happy individuals. 

Key learning:

  • Brain development in adolescence.
  • The impact of hormonal activity on the brain.
  • The impact of stress chemicals on behaviour and learning.
  • Supporting young people with anxiety disorders, anger, aggression and panic attacks.
