Mindfulness and the Teenage Brain

Current research in neuroscience is giving us a better understanding of the teenage brain. The changes that occur in brain circuitry during this period offer fertile opportunities for creativity and growth, while also creating risks for impulsivity and dangerous behavior. Mindfulness practices show great promise in giving teens powerful tools to navigate this important life stage, and a rewarding adulthood, as well. This workshop provides participants with information on the latest research regarding the developing teenage brain, followed by experiential practice in mindfulness exercises that are specifically designed for use with adolescents.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
