Digital Detox

Electronics and the Teenage Brain

Take a Closer Look

About this keynote

Ever wondered why teenagers seem so unpredictable?

Understanding their behavior can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. That’s where Dr. Christy Kane, a leading expert in adolescent mental health, comes in.


Through her proprietary models, Dr. Kane is helping parents, teachers, mentors, and school resource officers bridge the gap between adolescent unpredictability and effective support strategies.

Consider the adage, “Knowledge is power.” In Dr. Kane’s view, this is especially true when it comes to understanding teenagers. Dive into the fascinating world of teen brain chemistry, anatomy, and development to uncover what drives their behavior and emotions. Discover effective tactics for stabilizing teen mental health, enabling parents, teachers, and mentors to provide the guidance and support adolescents need to thrive. Explore the profound impact of social media and electronics on young minds, and learn strategies to mitigate their negative effects.

This presentation isn’t just about understanding teenagers—it’s about equipping everyone who interacts with them with the tools to navigate these critical years with confidence and insight. Society is changing. Communication is light years from what it was. Adolescents’ mental health is paramount, and knowing how to address it is key to fostering a supportive environment. It’s time to open new doors. Adopt new skills. Challenge old mindsets. And embrace innovation.


Dr. Christy Kane has the expertise you need to do all of these things and then some. Join us to unlock the secrets to navigating the teen years and build a more connected, understanding, and thriving environment for our youth.
