Until 10 - 15 years ago we believed the human brain reached biological maturity at about 12 years of age.  ​Your head circumference doesn't grow after that so it was assumed to be at maturity and any further development was psychological in nature. Now with brain scanning technologies we can see this doesn't really mature fully until mid-twenties on average. ​

An understanding of the ways in which a teenage brain performs differently to an adult, helps us to be evidence based and to meet the developmental needs of the teenager. It can also allow us to communicate in ways they will actually listen to! Nathan will explore with participants how this new information impacts our practice.
