Program Description

Wouldn’t life be so much easier if only we could understand what’s going on in the adolescent mind? Believe or not, now we can! This workshop uses the interdisciplinary developmental approach in the field of interpersonal neurobiology to dive deeply into the parenting experience of supporting the growth of adolescents into young adulthood and beyond.

Understand what adolescents in your working and personal life are going through. Discover how to build upon the ideas in Dr. Daniel Siegel’s New York Times bestseller Brainstorm to enhance your relationships with the adolescents in your life and to reactivate the best parts of adolescence in you.

This weekend, you will learn:

  • A science-based approach to support adolescents as they mature into adulthood
  • How the brain changes during adolescence and how the mind emerges
  • What needs to change in the relationship between adolescents and the adults in their lives, including parents, during this important period of transition.

The workshop will include plenty of examples from the presenters’ own family experiences, as well as from Dan’s clinical practice of 30 years. There will be experiential exercises and group discussions. You will take home strategies for keeping up with your adolescents’ developmental changes, and you will return to work and family life rejuvenated, with a new understanding of the essence of adolescence!

Why Attend?

  • Learn the scientific explanations for what happens neurobiologically in adolescents and the reasons for their corresponding behaviors.

  • Create ease in relationship with adolescents in your life, and reconnect with the positive attributes of the adolescence in you.

  • Develop a newfound appreciation for the human growth process, and learn how to support yourself and adolescents through the journey.
