Victory College is partnering with USC to bring you a special presentation on: Blame their brain: Why teenagers do what they do!

As a parent, you may find yourself asking: why is my teenager so moody? How can we communicate better with each other? How can I fix this problem before it’s too late? These questions are all too familiar amongst many parents of adolescents, so if you find yourself asking them, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Join USC researcher, Dr. Mike Nagel, expert in adolescent behaviour and development who will help you understand the way the adolescent brain works and why teenagers do what they do. Through his research, Mike will uncover some truths about nature vs nurture and provide you with the tools to raising happy and healthy teenagers.

Date: Wednesday 4 October

Time: 4pm – 5pm

Where: Victory College

Cost: FREE
