FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2018
REGISTRATION OPENS AT 12:45PM
Children and adolescents are not just smaller adults with little to no self-regulation. There is neuropsychological data as to why their developing brains can be more challenging and elusive to teach and counsel. However, there are ways to manage and work in tandem with the remarkable developing brain. This seminar will define the term ‘Executive Function’ and how we can use this knowledge to help teach and counsel children and adolescents. The presenters will cover and review some of the current evidence-based interventions and strategies in working with children and adolescents with a focus on the developing brain.
