The Teenage Brain: Understanding the Physiological and Emotional World of an Adolescent

Date recorded: 22 May 2019 | Speaker: Kristy Williams | Event: ELF Youth Ministry Network


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