ONLY WAITLIST AVAILABLE—Dr. Daniel Siegel discusses his New York Times bestseller Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

Between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. It’s no wonder that many parents approach their child’s adolescence with fear and trepidation.

According to renowned neuropsychiatrist Daniel Siegel, however, if parents and teens can work together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding of one another.

Dr. Siegel offers a roadmap for this type of connection in his new book, Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain—a New York Timesbestseller. At this special free GGSC event, Dr. Siegel will discuss how brain development impacts teenagers’ behavior and relationships, and will help parents understand how the teenage brain functions.

The event is free but registration is required. Seats are limited, so register soon.
