By [posts-author-link] on [date]
In this 14-minute video, first aired at the Dalai Lama Center’s Heart-Mind 2014 Conference, Daniel Siegel dispels myths regarding the adolescent brain, “raging hormones”, and impulsivity. He presents neurological changes and remodeling that occurs uniquely during adolescence, versus changes that occur during childhood. He outlines his “Brainstorm” approach to development, which centers around the emotional spark, social engagement, novelty, and creative exploration (ESSENCE). Siegel emphasizes four keys to maintaining healthy brain growth: keeping passion in your life, maintaining supportive social networks, trying new things, and challenging your mind with creative exploration.
