The presentation will provide a general overview of adolescent research accounting for why adolescents do the ‘stupid things’ (as defined by parents and societal standards) despite knowing some of the risks involved (for example, reckless driving, binge drinking, etc). It will also provide a synopsis of how mindfulness-based strategies may moderate these risks.
