Event Details

Have you ever wondered why your teenager or pre-teenager will not listen to you like they did when they were young? What about…why is my teenager acting like this?

If you have ever asked yourself these questions, you should join us for this fascinating workshop on adolescent brain development. Did you know that the brain continues to develop until age 25, on average? We hear a lot about early childhood and brain development; however, it is important to continue to support brain development in our children well past the ages of 0-5. The workshop will discuss brain development in adolescents (ages 10-20) and the impact that stress and trauma have on the stages of development. It also will explore generational challenges and effective parenting strategies with teens.

This workshop will be presented by Barb Iversen, who has a B.S. in Psychology and an M.C. from ASU. Barb has worked with and for youth, and the adults who interact with them, for thirty years in a variety of mental health, social service, and educational settings. She provides professional development and parenting education on a statewide basis, including trainings on many aspects of child/adolescent development, parenting skills, working with traumatized families, youth in care, and hard-to-reach parents.
