New handbook: The Adolescent Brain， A second window of opportunity
１２ 母子・思春期・学校保健７ 研究推進
Innocenti E-Update #3/2018
New handbook shares insights from research on adolescent brain development With 1.2 billion adolescents under its global mandate, it is crucial for UNICEF to identify the right periods or “windows of opportunities” for cost-efficient, scalable interventions to improve adolescent well-being. Over the past decade, a growing body of scientific knowledge reveals that the adolescent brain is still a work in progress, offering a crucial second window of opportunity to influence the development of children in their second decade of life. In The Adolescent Brain: A second window of opportunity, a new compendium publication produced by UNICEF Innocenti, eight experts in adolescent neuroscience present emerging findings from their research. Using accessible language, the main aim of the publication is to foster better collaboration between the scientific research community and social service providers to better counteract the effects of trauma and vulnerabilities and lay a better foundation for optimal adolescent development. The compendium builds on the discussions initiated at the 2016 symposium of the same name hosted at UNICEF headquarters, where leading scientists reviewed the state of evidence related to the adolescent brain.
