Graham Music : The Adolescent Brain
Time & Location
About The Event
This talk will look at adolescent emotional and brain development.
It will focus on some of the key challenges facing young people today in a world in which new pressures, such as technology and social media can hijack ancient inherited potentials, sending them along new and possibly worrying trajectories.
We will look at the challenges facing parents, therapists, and other professionals in the face of changes which are deeply affecting the minds, bodies, brains and nervous systems of young people.
The talk, using slides and videos, will think about what can redress this, in particular how their important relationships, with parents, therapists , other professionals and adults in their lives, can rebalance and recalibrate the adolescent nervous system, leading to living a better life and creating a more hopeful future.
