Did you know there are scientific reasons why it’s not so easy for a teen to “Just Say No”? Join this HHS Partnership webinar when Ruben Baler, PhD, health scientist at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), teaches us how to better understand the brain science behind the struggles teens may face in resisting drugs and other risky behaviors. In a presentation that can be adapted for use in your community, Dr. Baler will share the latest science on the teen brain -- how different parts of the brain develop at different rates, what brain development means, and how teens can make choices now that may help strengthen their brain and their resiliency as they meet life’s challenges. This engaging webinar will be helpful to youth-serving faith and community leaders, parents, and teens!
