The Teen Brain
- under construction -
 
There are reasons why teenagers do some of the things they do! Behaviours such as risk taking, novelty seeking and substance abuse can be related to a young person’s experience and environment.
 
Dr. Jean Clinton, a distinguished researcher and professor of Child Psychiatry from McMaster University, will provide some insight into the teenage brain during the next installment of the GECDSB’s Mental Health Seminar Series, Thursday, March 5th at the Ciociaro Club.
 
Dr. Clinton will offer strategies for parents and educators to connect with teenagers and support them through these challenging years. The presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. There will be an opportunity for questions and information on community resources will be available.
