Using the Teenage Brain to Understand Their Brain
Everyone is talking about the teenage brain. Yes, teenagers take more risks and are absolutely self-focused! Yet, the teen brain’s reactions to various triggers make sense from biological, cultural, and psychological perspectives-these perspectives can even help explain teen tendencies towards impulsivity and addiction. This session offers interdisciplinary, experiential strategies for working with the teenage brain by offering students opportunities to explore their own brains.
