The adolescent brain is unique; it is far more powerful and vulnerable than previously understood. Emerging research from the fields of neurology and neuroscience have begun to show a clearer picture of the role of the teen brain in emotions, friendships, risk-taking, learning and more. This webinar provides a basic understanding of the newer research and teaches practical, CBT-based interventions based on this new information.

We will explore the role of emotions in adolescence and learn CBT strategies for managing feelings and staying in control. With a special focus on the emotions of stress and pleasure, we will dig into the factors that drive these feelings, and ways to help kids recognize, manage and even use these emotions to help them move forward.

The teen brain is all about fitting in and finding a group, and we will look at the factors that lead teens to make head-shaking decisions in order to fit in. Not only will we talk about how to help teens navigate social scenes, we will normalize their need for belonging through engaging research studies and experiments.

Finally, we will explore why the teen brain needs meaning and purpose. Throughout history, adolescents have been driving forces behind social change (from Vietnam to gun violence). We will look at why the teen brain seeks meaning and learn skills to help kids find and build a sense of meaning in their own lives.

Join us for an overview of the ins and outs of the amazing teen brain!
