Understanding the Teenage Brain

This one hour talk can be delivered in-person or online.

It is aimed at parents but is also extremely useful for school staff and for the students themselves.

"We need every parent and teacher to attend Jane Keyworth’s outstanding presentation, ‘Understanding the Teenage Brain’! It provides a brilliant exposé of the challenges young people face as they develop from child to young adult. The presentation is very informative but also very accessible and entertaining.  I cannot recommend this talk highly enough!"

Mr Mead, Head at Lytchett School.

Drug Awareness
Levels 1, 2, 3

One hour sessions, delivered in-person to students from Year 8 through to Year 13

Drug Awareness - Level 1
Years 8 & 9

These students are between 12 and 14 years old and are at a critical decision-making age when it comes to experimenting with drugs for the first time. Statistically, it is the summer after Year 8, when those young people who develop addiction issues, try something for the first time. The focus of this sessions is alcohol, tobacco, vapes, sugar and caffeine and cannabis. The drugs most likely to be accessed by the very young.

Drug Awareness - Level 2

Years 10 & 11

These students are between 14 and 16 years old and are very likely to be socialising away from any adult supervision. Often they have siblings or romantic partners who are older still, meaning that they can easily be exposed to very adult environments. This session looks at the process of addiction and withdrawal, self-medication, commonly misused substances, with a special emphasis on cannabis and ketamine.

Drug Awareness - Level 3

Years 12 & 13

These students are between 16 and 18 years old and will be regularly socialising away from adult supervision. They are about to leave school and start the young adult stage of their development. They could be about to live anywhere in the country, or abroad, to study, travel or work. They need to be ready to live independently as adults away from the protection of their parents and school. To be able to make positive decisions they need hard hitting, genuine information about the risks and effects of drug misuse.

Stress & Anxiety Explained

This talk can be delivered in-person or online. The topic can be extended from one hour to three hours. This means it is suitable as a one hour talk for students but also for school staff training. The extension allows for interactive exercises and a deeper understanding. The underlying biology is explained and effective interventions taken from ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) and Mindfulness are introduced.
