The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health, in collaboration with the Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs and Penn Translational Neuroscience Center Co-Director Dr. Frances Jensen developed a video and two discussion guides about research on adolescent brain development, functioning, and capacity.

This new video, The Power of the Adolescent Brain: A TAG Talk uses research to shine a light on adolescent brain development. Motivated by her personal experience of parenting two teenage boys, and drawing on clinical experience and research, neurologist Dr. Jensen shares what researchers have discovered about adolescent brain development, functioning, and capacity and provides practical suggestions for practitioners and families with adolescents.
