I’m grateful to have the opportunity to incorporate my passion for mental health, developmental psychology, and teaching and to create a space where they each serve as mutual forces to enhance our understanding of human behavior. In this group, we will explore developmental milestones as they relate to cognitive, emotional, and social development. We will focus on understanding trajectories, impacting elements, and how to work towards improved outcomes. We will also examine the various aspects impacting adolescent risky behavior and learn from recent research studies. Finally, we will have a chance to practice applying what we learn to individual and personal circumstances.
