Child, Teen, and Family | Recovery Insights
This convenient list explores expert insights from our many child, teen, and family professionals who share a mission to make a difference with the complexity of self and family management for more informed choices when confused about various paths and treatment failures along life’s way.
Many don’t appreciate the complexity of growing up in these times without informed, validated maps. We’ve selected these guests to interview at CBJ because of their experience with a. growing individuals as well as b. family and sibling groups – two different realities that need particular attention and raised awareness to drive actionable planning with more precise traveling objectives.
These episodes address both your family journey and your collective destinations. Clear targets and an informed process will help you first to catch your train and then get off at each best station for all concerned.
Start: Robert Sapolsky Ph.D., a neuroendocrinologist at Stanford, who outlines the biology of these problems for us in this strongly recommended article regarding biological challenges with The Adolescent Brain – Dude Where’s My Prefrontal Cortex.
These guests can help you, and your medical teams add new possibilities beyond guesswork.
