Understanding the New Adolescence: Perspectives from Psychiatry and Psychology

14 / 02 / 2024

Adolescence is a period of transition that is crucial for the individual and for human biology. It is a period marked by physical, emotional, and social changes, arising from a radical brain restructuring that prepares us to live the adult stage in the best possible way.

In this webinar that took place on January 25th, promoted by the Occupational Risk Prevention department of Telefónica, psychiatrist Dr. Jose Antonio García and psychologist María Laorden address these issues from the perspective of development, mental health, environmental risks, and the vulnerability of the stage, with the goal of providing parents with tools that can be useful for navigating this period that is adolescence. And we say navigate, because as parents we want to accompany, guide, and sometimes let ourselves be carried along the paths that our adolescent children take us, doing so with respect, but with careful distant surveillance that encourages them to grow, evolve, gain autonomy, and take charge of the responsibilities characteristic of the life stage they are in.
