About the Workshop
The Neuroscience of High-Risk Behavior: Developmental Effects on Executive Functioning elucidates how substances and other risky behavior affect healthy neurodevelopment, the role of genetics in addiction, the effect of environment, and implications for prevention and treatment for children, teens, and adults. Dr. Crystal Collier, author of The NeuroWhereAbouts Guide, teaches clinicians how to teach the neuroscience of addiction to kids and adults that encourages them to protect their executive functioning skills, empowers parents to explore genetic testing for addiction, and enables teachers and counselors to develop consistent, brain-based prevention programming, clinical skills, and sound policy.

- To describe the role of genetics in addiction risk, cognitive, affective, and behavioral expressions depending upon environment and epigenetics.
- To apply prevention science techniques consistently within families and schools to achieve long-lasting protective effects.
