This session is for members of The Mighty Creatives’ Creative Mentor Network only. If you’d like to find out more about Creative Mentoring, visit our webpage.

Join us and Jo Stockdale from Well Within Reach to how we can support the turbulent times of adolescence through our Creative Mentoring work. We know that our ‘teenage years’ can be a tricky time, but there are reasons for this. This session is particularly helpful for those Creative Mentors who work with Secondary pupils and above.

In this session, you will explore the challenging, albeit normal, changes which take place in the adolescent brain, explaining many of the social and behavioral challenges associated with this period of life.

We hope by the end of the session you will better understand what you can -and can’t do, to support young and fragile brain development through this potentially turbulent window of time, by understanding and tapping it to its many innate strengths, rather than overcoming or mitigating the deficits and difficulties adolescence can often present.
