Learn how to work with the Adolescent Brain!

Neuroscientific research sees adolescence as a phase of brain development equivalent to the early years from infancy to three. From 13 to 24, the brain undergoes critical, intensive development that can impact individuals throughout their lives. Learn about the adolescent brain, what drives it and what can be done to support it in schools, sports, the arts and at home. Especially learn strategies to reduce the risk of serious injury and fatality.

Are you baffled by the teenager or twenty-something in your life?

  • Discover strategies to work with the adolescent brain, not against it

  • Find out why teens & young adults are addicted to their phones

  • Learn techniques to motivate, encourage, & prompt teens' self-regulation

  • Develop frameworks to protect teens from car accidents & substance abuse

  • Get informed from neuroscientists about teens' risk-taking, reward-seeking & susceptibility to peer influence

  • Draw on brain-science insights in order to help the teens & young adults in your life fuel & care for their brains for optimum performance

  • Help the youth in your world fulfill their amazing potential, attain happiness & success by managing their brains effectively

Learning about the Adolescent Brain

  • Teachers & Coaches

    Young people spend as much, if not more time, with teachers & coaches during the adolescent phase of their lives. It's critically important that educators are informed about peer-reviewed, replicated, consensus-building research in neuroscience so that they can facilitate the learning & development of youth through this challenging and critical phase for their brains.

  • Risks

    The leading cause of death in youth populations in North America is car accidents. It is not from lack of experience. It is due to their adolescent brain development, primed by evolution, making them risk-takers, susceptible to "hot cognition," hyper-sensitized to peers, and desperate for rewards. Neuroscience can be harnessed to save their lives.

  • New NeuroParadigm

    The second leading cause of death in youth populations in North America, and number one in Australia, is suicide. Too often, young people find themselves depleted & powerless to save themselves during this challenging phase of brain development. All who work with youth need to learn from neuroscience how to keep them healthy, positive & resilient.
