CDANZ Hawke’s Bay is delighted to host Nathan Mikaere-Wallis to speak on the neuroscience behind the development of the adolescent brain and how this impacts on behaviour, career decision-making and participation in the workforce.

Today we have a much clearer idea of exactly what these changes are and what to expect. Understanding brain maturation could extend until late 20’s can be a significant help for parents, educators, career practitioners, HR managers, employers and other professionals in navigating our way through these years. It will inform us and make sense of the nature of the big life decisions adolescents will make and how they will make them
