Born to be wild:

Why teens take risks and how we can keep them safe


Join us for the afternoon as Dr. Shatkin brings together more than two decades worth of research, experience and clinical practice from his time as the leader of the New York University Child and Adolescent Study Centre.


Dr Shatkin will provide professional development around how to better understand and support teenagers, giving significant insights into the ‘hidden’ worlds that they inhabit.


Dr Shatkin will share his thoughts, research and findings with us, touching upon brain science, evolutionary psychology, game theory and mental health, as well as his own concerns about being a Dad, an educator and frequent supporter of children and young people.


This conference is a must for Deans, Counsellors, Pastoral Leaders, Heads of Inclusion/Special Education and Senior Leaders.

Shatkin, MD, MPH, leads the educational efforts of the NYU Child Study Center, where he is Vice Chair for Education and Professor of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Pediatrics at the NYU School of Medicine.
