Meadowridge School Presents
Making Sense of Adolescence
with Deborah Macnamara, PHD, RCC
Crossing the bridge from childhood to adulthood has never been so daunting. The time of adolescence is longer than ever and yet society today offers little support in understanding or facilitating this transition. This presentation will discuss what healthy development looks like and consider issues such as anxiety and technology use in teens.
