There are numerous studies regarding the biological processes that teenagers go through. These studies attempt to explain why certain behaviors are stereotypical of adolescents, such as poor impulse control. An overlooked aspect of adolescence, however, is the fact that adolescence as we know it was simply non-existent until very recently. How was this new age category created and how does this impact how our students act and react? In this webinar, we will discuss these questions while analyzing the social environment where teenagers were generated and the changes this environment is undergoing at the moment.
