Description

Angst and Adolescence - The Science of Teenagers

Public Lecture

Subject

Adolescence can be a tough time to live through for teenagers – and for parents! But help is at hand in this fun event as Dr Declan McKenna explains the science behind teenage behaviour. Using familiar examples from the eternal struggle between parents and teenage children to set the scene, he explains how biological changes in the teenage brain and body impact upon mood, sleep and emotions in ways that are not always easily controlled. Parents and teenagers are encouraged to attend together as it promises to be both a wonderful and totally embarrassing bonding experience!
