On-Demand Learning: Child and Adolescent Brain Development

On Demand Webinar

On Demand Course – Child and Adolescent Brain Development

Over the past 25 years, there have been significant strides in what we know about the developing brain from birth through adolescence. This module will provide an overview of that research, along with promising practices and protocols that build resilience. We will explore topics including risk, resiliency, and protective factors, along with an examination of the underlying impact that Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can have on cognitive and emotional development and decision-making. This presentation will also cover the latest developments in research on adolescent brain development and examine how brain science has changed what we know about teenage behavior to assist prosecutors in becoming more familiar with the developmental approach. This will not only increase their understanding of the general principles, but will also inform their positions on intake, detention, and case
