Adolescence – What is going on?
Adolescence can be such a difficult time for both the individual going through it and those supporting them.
Understanding the neuroscience of what is going on in the brain and body during this transition won’t necessarily stop the behaviours that occur, but it will help us understand them. Through understanding, we can lessen the pressure that is put on these youth. This not only helps us maximise the development during the period, but it can improve relationships and reduce the emotional stress youth may be feeling.
This session will cover aspects such as facial recognition, perspective taking, the alteration in dopamine activity and the all-important issue of parental separation. These issues and more will be unpacked and explained.

Tena koe, Thank you for your presentation tonight. You were such an engaging speaker and I walked away buzzing about what I can do differently in my classroom (Year 8's with 19 boys and 9 girls!). Nga mihi
