The Power of The Adolescent Brain

This new video from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of Adolescent Health uses research to shine a light on adolescent brain development, functioning, and capacity and provides practical suggestions for practitioners and families with adolescents. The video can be viewed in one full-length format as well as broken out into six segments (including one on mental health). Two accompanying discussion guides — one for professionals and one for families — can be used in a variety of settings, including staff meetings, conference sessions, or trainings, and instructions for preparation and facilitation are provided.
