Presentation by Dr.Dissanayake - The Teenage Brain - still under construction...
Understanding Teenagers - Womens' Institute talk -Oxfordshire wide
"A great presentation, just left me wanting to know more and read more. You were very calm about teenagers and showed by example how to deal with them. You were obviously on their side and we're trying to bring carers on board. Interestingly I told my son about it when I got home and he just reinforced that he hadn't 'got' to the rational thinking bit yet. He and his closest friend think we should behave more instinctively and gets frustrated with adults that have lost their sense of fun and inhibition. I can see his point but maybe not always the best approach!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation which was in a very easy to understand format.several members I have spoken to since felt it was pitched at exactly the correct level for them. I was left wanting to know more. I also felt every parent should be made much more aware of the brain development of their teenagers - just maybe it would give more understanding of the stroppy teenager?"
