On January 29th, the British School of Bostn will welcome Neuroscientist and Author of Teen Brain Teen Mind,
Dr. Ron Clavier, for the first in an exciting program of expert speakers.


Dr. Clavier’s insightful and illuminating lecture, Understanding the Teenage Brain, demonstrates that an understanding of the teenage brain is the key to unlocking
the mysteries of why teens think and act the way they do. His own deep understanding of human brain development allows him to show how neurological changes in a young person’s developing brain underlie many behaviors and
emotions.


Illustrating his ideas with examples and observations, he
provides coping tips and strategies for young people and their families, easing tensions and improving communications to make the adolescent years healthier
and more productive.


Dr. Clavier is skilled in making connections between science and society, and making scientific concepts easy to understand. An experienced and dynamic speaker, he is honest, funny and down-to-earth. His talks have been
enjoyed by teenagers, parents and educators all over the world.


Paul Wiseman, Headmaster at the British School of Boston,
said; “We are delighted to have Dr. Clavier here at the British School of Boston, discussing how best to understand, support and maximize the success of our
young people.


At British School of Boston we work individually with each
of our students, creating targets for personal, social and academic learning and using tailor-made strategies to reach them. Effective communication and an
in-depth understanding of student strengths, preferences and needs are the keys to the great outcomes we bring about, and Dr. Clavier’s work gives further
insight into how these can be achieved. We have a fantastic community of students, parents and teachers all working together, and this is a wonderful learning opportunity for all of us. We hope others will come and join us for this event and future talks.”


Dr. Clavier’s work is informed by a background in
neuroscience, biochemical psychiatry and clinical psychology. From Montreal, he achieved his Doctorate in Experimental and Physiological Psychology before
completing Postdoctoral training in Biochemical Psychiatry. He taught anatomy and psychology in medical schools before opening his own clinical psychology practice. He also consults in the corporate, law enforcement,  community, health and education sectors, advising those who work with young people. Through his television series Adolescence: The Stormy Decade (2001-2007) and his writing, he helps teenagers, their families and those working with teens.


“One of the most upbeat,
entertaining and yet intensely human presentations I’ve ever attended...”
