EDITED TO ADD: this event sold out very quickly – sorry! I’m delighted at the response, though. Many in the audience are teachers, youth workers, and members of Scottish government departments, as well as parents, and I’m really looking forward to being able to engage with a really varied and interested audience. Do contact me if you’d like to be on the waiting-list in case of cancellations. ALSO, do let me know if you’d like me to keep you informed when I do other brain events around the country.
Are you just occasionally driven demented by your teenagers? Do you ever despair for their futures, worry about their risk-taking, roll your eyes at their emotional volatility? (While ignoring your own.) Do you wonder what is going on in their heads? Do you believe you were “never like that”? (Or do you know you were, and that’s why you’re worried?) Perhaps you teach them or work with them. Perhaps you don’t yet have a teenager but you’ve heard rumours…
If so, I have organised a special event for you, if you can get to Edinburgh on Monday November 26th, 2012. This will be the only public opportunity to hear me talk about the teenage brain before a new edition of Blame My Brain comes out next May. At this event I will reveal the new and fascinating material that is going in the new edition. There will be handouts for further reference, including interesting new advice about sleep. (Sleep for your teenagers, not you…)
NB: the first 15 people to book a place will receive a voucher for an EXTRA £1 off a book bought on the night. (Added to the discounts already on offer.)
When? Monday 26th November, 7pm. Talk with Q&A, followed by time to socialise and buy signed books at discount. (My other books will also be available. That’s Christmas sorted!)
Where? Royal Terrace Hotel, Edinburgh – luxury central Edinburgh hotel with excellent conference and bar facilities, and free parking in the evenings. I will be providing refreshments after the talk.
I have so much to tell you about the teenage brain, things that will fascinate, inspire and also reassure parents and any adults working or living with teenagers. I aim to offer an evening that is mind-opening and will change the way you look at adolescents. Please come! And tell your friends.
