Much of what we think we knew about the development of the human brain has been eclipsed by recent scientific and neurological discoveries. These new understandings mean that we need to rethink many of the ways we have traditionally responded to the main developmental stages and developmental disorders that occur between birth and early adulthood. Over two days Nathan will discuss the implications of this research for best practice across a range of practice domains.
This two day intensive is being offered in response to the large number of member requests we have received to hear more from Nathan following the success of his recent one day seminar. Nathan will further develop the material covered in the one day presentation and introduce new content with a greater opportunity for delegate participation and questions. Attendance at the earlier one day workshop is not a prerequisite.

Topics addressed during the two-day workshop include:
Day 1

  • Introduction to neuroscience terms
    Summary of the 1990s
    The formative nature of the early years
    Gender differences in the brain
    The impacts of domestic violence
    Movement and Learning
    The neuro-sequential model of the brain
    Longitudinal studies predicting adult outcomes

Day 2

  • The biology of learning
    Neural pruning
    Hormones in the brain: Cortisol and Endorphins
    Atypical brain development: EG. Autism, OCD, ADHD
    The teenage brain
    The Effect of alcohol and marijuana on the adolescent brain
