Youth and Brain Development
Presented by: Melodie York with the Department of Mental Health
Description: Adolescent Brain Anatomy, Development, and Implications on Decision Making is an introductory training on brain development designed to assist individuals who work with and support adolescents in making informed decisions relating to direct care and policy. As this presentation demonstrates, adolescents are not mini-adults but rather are young individuals growing and developing at a rapid rate. Teens have strong preferences for which type of service providers they most optimally respond. For example, providers that actively work to combat stigma, engage and cultivate peer relationships, stay informed about youth culture, and bring youth voice to the table have higher success at engaging youth than those programs that do not. Adolescence is a complex and highly susceptible period of development. This presentation provides a general overview of brain anatomy and describes key structures and systems involved in brain development. It also describes what science says about teen decision-making, provides practical exercises to foster improved decision-making, and introduces the participant to how adolescent brain development is affected by chronic trauma, drug, and alcohol use. Total time for training including questions and answers is 2 hours.
