The Adolescent Brain: Under Construction

Jean M Clinton BMus, MD, FRCP(C)
presented by Hincks-Dellcrest Institute

This presentation will explore what has been learned about the brain development and how environment and experience play a key role in this development. Risk taking, novelty seeking and drive for rewards are going to be explained as typical and normal behaviours in adolescents. However, this is a time of extreme vulnerability and with it a heightened risk for the development of mental health disorders.

The wide spread use of social media and technology will be explored, along with its impacts on brain development. As well as the fact that young people are stronger, faster, living in a time of high morbidity and mortality which is also linked to risk taking and novelty seeking. Weather the two are connected, and that with greater neuroplasticity there is greater vulnerability will be discussed.

You will:

• Gain understanding of brain development and changes during adolescent

• Participate in a discussion on how social media and other stressors may be contributing to the apparent increase in anxiety being reported by young people

• Explore the correlation between the physical changes and the increased vulnerability to physical accidents and injury

This training is suitable for educators, mental health professionals, direct service workers, and medical (Nurses, Pediatricians, Family Doctors)

Facilitator: Jean M Clinton BMus, MD, FRCP(C)
