Dr. Kelly Jameson


Title: The Science of Heartbreak: Why Teen Break-Ups are So Devastating
Do you remember your first love? Does it still sting to think about how in ended? The answer is probably YES! Many disappointing events can impact the emotional health of an adolescent, but research indicates that heartbreak might be at the top of the list! Why is that first attempt at romantic love so important to the development of a adolescent, and why is that first heartbreak so devastating? As adults, we tend to minimize this experience for teens but new information encourages adults to recognize the emotional implications and developmental delays that could occur following the first intense break-up.
