<br><font face="arial, sans-serif">Psychiatrist and adolescent health specialist, Prof George Patton, discusses why puberty -- especially early puberty -- and adolescence can be so tough, but how most of us survive the journey. Presented by Dr Dyani Lewis. </font><br style="font-family:arial,sans-serif;font-size:13px">

<br style="font-family:arial,sans-serif;font-size:13px"><font face="arial, sans-serif">"Those parts of the brain that really are involved in that emotional regulation develop really continuously through the adolescent years through to the mid-20s. So in a sense there's a bit of a gap. Now that gap probably allows that creativity and that flourishing cognitively during these years but it does create this window of vulnerability for  these emotional and behavioural problems." -- Prof George Patton </font><br>
