We will take a look at the various changes that take place in the adolescent brain and specifically how they relate to risky behaviors. Many times service providers are tasked not only with talking to the adolescent that may be struggling but also with the family unit, both the adolescent and the family unit can benefit from understanding some general neuroscience regarding the changes in the brain during adolescence. During this workshop we will explore practical interventions to utilize when addressing such struggles.
