The Developing Brain (Neuroscience), with Nathan Wallis
Nathan Wallis bases this workshop on the latest advances in brain development research, addressing the latest discoveries relating to brain development and functioning, relating to the years from childhood right through to late adolescence and working through the apparent gap between how people ‘think’ the developing brain functions and what neuroscience research has actually shown to be the case. An understanding of this knowledge will help to guide our practice to better meet the behavioural, developmental and educational needs of the children and adolescents we work with.
You will come away with a clearer understanding of the ideal physical, emotional, educational and social conditions under which the developing brain functions at its best; what implications this knowledge has upon your professional practice with children and adolescents, along with a clearer understanding of what approaches and interventions work best from a neuroscience perspective and how you can guide behaviour change in a way that acknowledges and utilises the unique workings of the developing brain.
From a neuroscience perspective, unravel common mistakes parents, teachers, and professionals make when working with adolescents and pre-adolescents and which of our current approaches have been shown to be less helpful than we thought.
