9:00 am - 2:30 pm


Location: This course will be run online via Zoom. Full details of how to join will be sent in advance of the day.

For many years we have blamed challenging teenage behaviour on hormones but that is only part of the story. Insights provided by recent developments in neuroscience have allowed us to understand how the brain has evolved through time, and to understand how the human brain matures.

Today’s teenagers feel under more pressure to be successful at a younger age, to make decisions earlier, and to generally grow up faster than previous generations. Teachers and Parents can benefit hugely from having a wider and deeper understanding of the developing adolescent brain.

Who should attend?  

Teachers in a Secondary Setting, Pastoral Leaders

Aims of the course: 

This course helps delegates to understand their fight and flight instincts and their (seemingly) unreasonable responses to our perfectly reasonable requests…whilst at the same time offering advice and practical solutions to the challenges facing, and presented by, emerging adolescents and young people both in school and at home.

Course tutor: Ross McWilliam
