Friday-Sunday, 2 nights
CE Credits available
Plus 2 nights all-inclusive accommodations priced separately below.
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:
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!
