Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain

teenage-brainA CE Webinar with Daniel Siegel, M.D. – Join Dr. Dan Siegel as he helps you crack this code with groundbreaking research in interpersonal neurobiology for this 90- minute lecture based on his newest book, Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain. Dr. Siegel explores how brain development affects teenage behavior and relationships and how mastering this knowledge helps promote understanding between parents and their teens. This presentation will offer insights into hyper-rational thinking, impulsivity, changes in the dopamine drive for reward, and increases in the emotional reactivity of the brain to illuminate many of the potential risk factors during these transformative years of life. Rather than seeing adolescence as a period of immaturity or dysfunction, this view suggests that the essence of adolescence—the emotional spark, social engagement, novelty-seeking, and creative explorations—can best be harnessed by supporting these important and necessary aspects of our human development.

Learning Objectives:

  1.  Describe 4 fundamental aspects of the essence of adolescence
  2. Recognize the difference between impulsivity and hyper rational thinking
  3. List the 2 major components of the remodeling process in the teenage brain
  4. Summarize 3 outcomes of the changes in dopamine processing in the adolescent brain
