My Teen Brain

Hertfordshire County Council Childhood Support Services have launched My Teen Brain. My Teen Brain focuses on a key stage of brain development and shows how changes in the adolescent brain, in conjunction with experience and environment, can affect emotions, relationships, behaviours, sleep and attitudes to risk.  

The project aims to raise awareness and provide practical information and strategies to both parents/carers and professionals.  Through training and a range of resources, the initiative will enable them to support young people through this time of change.

Information on the changes that take place in the teen brain is available on our dedicated website:

The website contains lots of practical information and advice for both parents/carers and professionals.  

Practitioner training

This one-day practitioner course will enable practitioners working with either adolescents or their parents/carers to gain an in-depth understanding of brain development and strategies to promote positive behaviours and manage conflict to enable them to support and guide young people. The learning outcomes of the training day should enable delegates to embed the learning into their practice.
