Brain Science: Helping Teens & Parents Navigate Tough Times – Aug 24

Posted by Inquirer LIVE on August 17, 2021

These days, people of all ages may be feeling out of sync—and perhaps even a bit alien. But the challenges are unique for teenagers and the people who love them. Frances Jensen, M.D., chair of the neurology department at Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine, and a parent herself, knows what it’s like to face a teen who is wonderful in so many ways—yet sometimes can’t get their homework done or resist taking risks that terrify an adult brain.

Join us on Tuesday, August 24 at 4:15-5:15 p.m. for an in-depth conversation with Inquirer health editor Charlotte Sutton and Frances Jensen, M.D., as they discuss how the pandemic is affecting teens, as well as topics that have long been with us, such as school start times and sleep, substance use, stress, digital distractions, mental illness and more.
