Adolescent Brain Development

Myths and Truths

During the tumultuous stage of adolescence, the brain undergoes significant changes. During this period, adolescents are more likely to engage in risk-taking behaviours, seek out novel and new experiences, and emphasize peer friendships over family relationships. These neurological, hormonal, and behavioural shifts can leave educators, parents, and other caring adults feeling overwhelmed and reactive rather than supportive. This workshop explores the neurobiology and development of the adolescent brain, as well as the subsequent effects on cognition, emotions, physiology, relationships, and behaviour. Participants will leave with new insights and ideas for supporting adolescents as they navigate this critical stage of development.
