Adolescent Brain Development: Understanding the Impact of Stress & Trauma

Please join the Arizona Department of Health Services for a FREE two-day training:

Adolescent Brain Development: Understanding the Impact of Stress & Trauma

The training will focus on understanding adolescent brain development and how traumatic experiences in childhood and adolescence affect the developing brain and impact relationships, learning and behavior. It will address what trauma informed care means in the context of adolescent brain development and how stress impacts adolescents differently than adults due to social, emotional, cognitive and brain development. The training provides recommendations for avoiding re-traumatization, promoting healthy development and coping, supporting youth in resolving trauma, and making effective referrals for mental health services when necessary.

As a result of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe what trauma informed care means in the context of adolescent brain development
  • Explain how traumatic experiences in childhood and adolescence affect the developing brain
  • Identify strategies for helping teens cope more effectively with stress
