cover.jpg.rendition.460.707.png

Just about any teacher will tell you that dealing with teenagers for a living can range from rewarding to nightmarish. But don’t blame or credit the child…it’s all on the child’s brain.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll learn how the constantly changing brain of teenagers makes them who they are…eventually.

We’ll hear the story of a Massachusetts woman whose brain underwent changes due to a childhood trauma, the care that was needed to help get her life back…and we’ll spend an academic minute finding out just who is likely to develop PTSD.
