Empowering the Adolescent Brain for Valorization

Friday, March 23 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM

Presenter: Mindy Mahar

Target Audience: Secondary I, Secondary II

Explore the basic neuroscience underlying the Third Plane of Development, and identify specific strategies for teaching adolescents about the inner workings of their brains. In doing so, you’ll help them find healthy ways to engage in dopamine-increasing experiences, utilize mindfulness techniques to support brain development, and develop skills like empathy, kindness, generosity, and compassion, which pave the way to valorization.
