Understanding the Adolescent Brain

In this workshop, we will learn about adolescent brain development, what that looks like in action, and ways for us to support and navigate through adolescence alongside our children. Adolescents need and deserve adults that support their development and understand what they might not yet be able to do. This looks like: guidance, practice, time, space, repetition, support, permission to make mistakes, and collaborative corrective measures. We will spend our time growing our understanding of the neuroscience of the adolescent brain and developing a greater awareness of a developmentally supportive mindset to best support our young people.
