    Closed Captioned. When equipped with a solid understanding of how adolescent brains develop, attorneys in child welfare are uniquely positioned to advocate for youth experiencing foster care to have opportunities to have experiences and practice skills that they will need to become independent and self-sufficient adults. This training will help attorneys understand the science behind adolescent brain development and how to apply the science to practice to more authentically engage youth in and out of court.

    This 90 minute training will cover the following topics:
    •The history and background of the research into how adolescent brains develop and how they differ from the brains of children and adults.
    •Why understanding the science is important for people who practice in child welfare and what is at stake.
