Beschreibung

Discusses the most recent breakthroughs in adolescent brain research as they relate to social networking, drugs, mental health, driving, and other aspects of teen life, in a guide to understanding and dealing with teen behaviors.

Autorentext

Aaron M. White holds a PhD in biological psychology and speaks internationally about adolescent brain development. Before joining the National Institutes of Health, he served as an assistant professor of psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center.



Klappentext

Adolescence has long been characterized as the "storm and stress" years, and with recent developments in digital communication, it seems today's teens are in for a more complicated journey than ever before. Even the most sympathetic, "in-touch" parents might throw their hands up in frustration at their teen's unpredictable and risky behavior and ask: what are they thinking?!

It turns out that teens' thrill-seeking activities and quests for independence aren't just the result of raging hormones, but rather typical effects of the unique structure and development of the adolescent brain. In easily navigable chapters full of practical anecdotes and examples, acclaimed scientists Aaron White and Scott Swartzwelder draw from the most recent studies on the teen brain to illuminate the complexities of issues such as school, driving, social networking, video games, and mental health in kids whose crucial brain connections are just coming online.



Zusammenfassung
Groundbreaking developments in adolescent brain research underpin this straightforward guide to understanding-and dealing with-teen behavior.
