Session 1: What’s Going on in Their Heads?

Teen Brains and Behavior

Brittney Schrick, Ph.D. and Pebble Sutherland, M.D.

What’s Going On?

  • Teen brains aren’t fully developed. Especially the prefrontal cortex and the limbic system.
  • This means teens aren’t quite capable of consistent impulse control, they can’t really plan ahead or see long-term consequences of behavior, they may blow small things out of proportion and underestimate the meaning of big things.
  • They probably have some noticeable mood swings, some tendency to withdraw from you in favor of peers, some preoccupation with appearance and grooming, and a dip in self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Teens are more susceptible than adults to the development of addictive behaviors because their brains are still developing pathways that tell them what feels good. Couple that with their lack of impulse control and lack of ability to assess long-term consequences, it may lead them to developing problem behaviors.

What Can I Do?

  • Be present, and pay attention
  • Listen to them (really listen, don’t just sit and wait to talk)
  • Encourage them to sleep
  • Encourage healthy choices
  • Let them mess up
  • Allow natural consequences to occur (assuming they won’t cause irreparable harm)
  • Set clear, consistent rules
  • Offer opportunities for responsibility
  • Take their perspective…and let them know it
  • Practice mindfulness with your child
