My name is Alice Wellington. I'm a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and my passion is for restoring broken relationships. Some of the most painful relationships that are in need of repair are those within our own families, like with our kids. And quite honestly, of all the ages we struggle with, the teenage years are amongst the hardest. In fact, the teenage brain can sometimes seem as hard to understand as perhaps a foreign language, but the good news is there is a powerful way to understand the "language" of the teenager and nurture our teen's healthy growth!
The book, "Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain", by Dr. Dan Siegel is a book worth reading. I will be teaching and providing a synopsis of this book Saturday, September 27th, from 9am to noon. All are welcome and there is no charge or required reading. If you cannot attend, I highly recommend reading this book and even offering it to your teenager to read. Dr. Siegel has written this book with both parents and teenagers as hi audience. Please feel free to share this announcement with anyone you feel would benefit.

Between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. 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.
In Brainstorm, Siegel illuminates how brain development impacts teenagers' behavior and relationships. Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, he explores exciting ways in which understanding how the teenage brain functions can help parents make what is in fact an incredibly positive period of growth, change, and experimentation in their children's lives less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.
