Key learning outcomes:
- Fear, frustration and aggression: Learn about the connections between behaviour and the neuro-immune endocrine system in adolescence
- Delve into the development of the adolescent brain under the influence of hormonal, neuronal, environmental and technological influences and how they influence behaviour
- Wholistic strategies and interventions to support patients with stress and mood challenges.
A journey all adults have experienced, the transition from childhood to adulthood is not only influenced by hormonal and neuronal development but is also shaped by each generation's social, cultural and technological environment. Dominated by physical, psychological, emotional, cognitive and social changes, adolescence is a heady time of emotional highs and lows, incredible passion and energy but it can also be risky, frustrating, confusing and daunting filled with social, familial and personal pressures, expectations and challenges. More than 75% of mental health issues develop before a person is 25, adolescence is a time when we are at greatest risk of becoming addicted to illicit drugs, tobacco or gambling, and developing mental illnesses like depression, anxiety disorders and self-harm. Whilst frustration, fear and aggression can be major obstacles in a young person’s quality of life, these subjective feelings and emotions can be a vital clue in the piecing together the puzzle of a patient’s health picture.
Join Craig Baron, for a wholistic, practical and insightful session in navigating some of the challenges of mental health and behaviour during adolescence with real-life health narratives and case studies. Utilise conceptualised patient-focused headspace and mood profiles, including nutritional, herbal treatment and wholistic strategies.
