Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain - DVD

In this presentation, Dr. Siegel will offer insights into hyper-rational thinking, impulsivity, changes in the dopamine drive for reward, and increases in the emotional reactivity of the brain to illuminate many of the potential risk factors during these transformative years of life. Rather than seeing adolescence as a period of immaturity or dysfunction, this view suggests that the essence of adolescence — the emotional spark, social engagement, novelty-seeking, and creative explorations — can best be harnessed by supporting these important aspects of our human development.
