Bringing psychiatric neuroscience to teachers

midfulness adolescence

Last October 29th, the Synapsy clinical researcher, Camille Piguet, took part in a day of in-service training for teachers at the Collège du Léman. Each year, the teachers of this international school, which covers the levels from primary school to federal maturity, choose a theme that is close to their hearts. Innovation was the main topic of the 2018 edition. In this context, they invited Camille Piguet to address the theme of neuroscience and mindfulness, among other topics.

200 teachers attended the conference entitled Emotion, Brain and Development. “The conference provided them with information on emotion regulation, in particular during adolescence, and might help raise awareness about vulnerability in terms of mental health at this period.”, says Camille Piguet.
