The Winona Public Library will hold a four-week online book discussion of Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain by Daniel Siegel. Those wanting to participate should join the Library’s Facebook Group, Winona Public Library - Brainstorm by Daniel J. Siegel, and can pop in and out of the discussion at any point; the program is self-paced.
Neuropsychiatrist, Daniel J. Siegel, author of The Whole-Brain Child, is back again with Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of theTeenage Brain, the follow-up book on the adolescent brain from ages 12-24. Siegel explains how brain development can affect teenage behavior and relationships. Using important new research in interpersonal neurobiology, “he explores exciting ways in which understanding how the teenage brain functions can help parents make what is, in fact, an incredibly positive period of growth, change, and experimentation in their children's lives less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.” –From the Publisher
