Understanding the Adolescent

Thank you for signing up for our workshop Understanding the Adolescent.

We will send you further information closer to the time. 

The adolescent brain works and responds to the world differently from the brain of a child or the adult. There are significant differences in brain from the perspective of functioning, wiring and capacity. During the teen years, our brains change in the way we: remember, think, reason, focus attention, make decisions and relate to others.

We feel privileged to be partnering with expert professionals from Tara- The H Moross psychiatric hospital to bring you an afternoon of information rich presentations on topics pertinent to understanding the adolescent such as mood disorders, eating disorders, DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy) self-harm and suicide prevention. This workshop is free to all and is aimed at educators, health professionals and parents.

Tea and coffee will be served and there will be a cash tuckshop available for light refreshments.

We look forward to hosting you!
