My Teen Brain Training

My Teen Brain focuses on a key stage of brain development and shows how changes in the adolescent brain, in conjunction with experience and environment, can affect emotions, relationships, behaviours, sleep and attitudes to risk.  

The initiative aims to raise awareness and provide practical information and strategies to professionals. This training along with a range of resources, will enable you to support young people through this time of change.

Professionals working with young adolescents (10-15) and/or their families are invited to attend a free one-day multi-agency training which will look at changes to the adolescent brain, risks and behaviours and how the learning can help a strength-based approach to practice.

This full day training has been adapted to be delivered live online. Dates available are:

Tuesday 11th May 2021               10am – 3pm

Wednesday 9th June 2021           10am – 3pm

Thursday 15th July 2021               10am – 3pm

Tuesday 21st September 2021     10am – 3pm
