Part One: A Look Inside the Brain
Join us on September 27, 7-8:30 p.m.
Have you ever wondered what your adolescent daughter is thinking? Are you seeking to understand what’s going on inside her growing brain? We all know the years between 11 and 17 are integral in the development of young women, but we don’t always understand why. Recent research, particularly through Magnetic Resonance Imagery (MRI), has given us more of a window inside the developing brain. This session will review some of that research, specifically as it pertains to the female adolescent and explain how physical development impacts thought and reasoning. Tips for working with adolescent girls as parent or teacher will be shared.
