Adolescent Growth and Development

by Marion on January 25th, 2013

Here is a quick summary from Virginia State University about adolescent growth and development. It covers topics such as:

  • what are physical, cognitive and psychosocial developments?
  • how do they affect teens?
  • what can you do to help ‘normalize’ these changes for teens?

This is a great tool to use when training new staff to work with youth or to help sensitize staff, who don’t directly work with youth, to better understand how to best meet their needs.

In a 1/2 an hour, you could present info on one of the three areas, invite discussion on what you could do, then reflect on the suggestions that are presented in the handout. It’s a quick and easy way to build youth-sensitivity training into your workplace.
