Workshop- The Teenage Brain

The Post 16 Forum in Birmingham presents a half-day workshop for Schools with Sixth-Forms, Colleges, Universities and Post 16 providers.

Exploring the relationship between teenage brain development, attachment, experiences and education

This workshop will provide delegates with an insight into the mental and emotional health and wellbeing of young people. The workshop aims to help practitioners working with young people to grow their understanding of the eclectic needs, presentation and possible challenges faced by young people with mental and emotional difficulties.

We hope to support staff to feel more confident engaging with young people experiencing difficulty, whether that difficulty is a normal part of adolescent life or a part of an illness process.
