Decision making and the adolescent brain
Sep 16, 2022
Earlier this year, Dovetail released a new animation on decision making and the adolescent brain. Adolescence is a key period of learning and growth. From around age 10 through to around age 25, young peoples’ brains are maturing and developing. This short video helps to explain why young people’s decision making may be seen by adults as risky, impulsive, poorly thought out, or driven by emotion.
The animation adds to videos and other resources on the Dovetail website that supports those working with young people affected by alcohol and other drug use.
