The teenager's brain has incredible potential, yet if youth and the adults that work with them do not understand this powerful organ, we may be missing out on opportunities to shepherd and mentor the next generation. This talk looks at a teenager's brain development and its neurological stages, hormonal levels, stress functions, substance and addiction issues, and several other topics that give insight into why teenagers act and feel the ways that they do.
