During adolescence many changes take place within the teenage brain. Dr John Coleman will host this event on Tuesday 24th November from 10 – 11.30am for practitioners to explain how this new information came about as a result of the technology of scanning. Dr John Coleman is a psychologist, author & research fellow. The event will explain:

Some of the key features of the human brain

The main changes that take place during the adolescent years

The role of Hormones such as dopamine

Emotions, stress, risk-taking and sleep

The social brain

Dr Coleman will show how the changes lead to both positive & not-so-positive aspects of teenage behaviour. He will conclude by exploring why this matters for practitioners, and how this knowledge can influence practice with troubled young people.
