John Coleman is a psychologist with a long-standing interest in young people. He has written extensively about adolescent development, having worked in schools, universities and in research centres. His current interests are support for parents of teenagers, and the teenage brain. During lockdown he has been writing blogs and running workshops for parents and for professionals about the situation and how it may affect teenagers and their families. John kindly ran a workshop for us on this subject, so we asked him if he’d be happy to share some of his fascinating insight on our blog channel.
