Adolescence is a period marked by dramatic changes physically and emotionally. It is also a period of time when the brain undergoes critical transformations that make it particularly open to learning and vulnerable to risk. This talk provides educators with information about the teenage brain. Attendees will learn about why adolescents are particularly prone to risk-taking behaviors, vulnerable to peer pressure, and attached to social media. They will also learn how to capitalize on these changes to promote improved self-regulation and to maximize learning among teenaged students.
