Upcoming Parent Seminar - The Adolescent Brain
Old Trail School's Teaching & Learning Center invites you to attend The Adolescent Brain: Practical Strategies for Navigating Stress, Anxieties and the Emotions of Young People, presented by Steven G. Feifer, DEd., ABANSP on Monday, January 28, 2019 at 7 p.m. at the School. This event is free and open to the public.
This workshop will explore the neural architecture of emotional functioning and discuss key brain regions responsible for the development of behavioral self-regulation skills in adolescents. Specific strategies to help students who struggle with stress, emotional dysregulation, anxiety and depression will be shared.
