Fourth Anniversary of Dr Jack’s Brain Talks for Secondary Schools

“The talk was inspirational for staff and students alike. The students enjoyed your informal yet informative style. You made difficult concepts easy to grasp. They especially liked how you applied these high level ideas to their everyday lives and studying. You were witty andmost importantly not in the slightest bit patronising.”

Adolescent Brains in the 21st Century by Dr Jack

Adolescence is a time of trial and error, of the highest emotional highs and the lowest lows. By adulthood most of us have accrued enough experience to have an instinct on the right way to deal with most situations. But adults often forget that as children our instincts were usually very unreliable because, without enough time to develop extensive experience, instincts are driven primarily by the urge to experiment.
