In recent years, there has been a growing concern worldwide regarding the understanding and addressing of adverse behavior among the youth. Various theories and interventions have been developed to effectively tackle this issue. One such theory is Mentalization-Based Theory (MBT), which holds promise in this regard. Mentalization refers to the ability to understand one’s own emotions and thoughts, as well as those of others. By emphasizing the role of mental actions in regulating emotions, navigating interpersonal relationships, and making better choices, MBT can have a profound impact on the autonomic nervous system. Education plays a crucial role in addressing this issue as well. It emphasizes practicality, action, and the consequences of beliefs and actions. Through education, individuals acquire the necessary tools to evaluate situations, analyze information, and make informed decisions based on their experiences and knowledge. It also exposes them to diverse subjects, allowing them to explore different perspectives, challenge assumptions, and develop critical thinking skills. MBT, in particular, encourages young people to reflect on their emotions, thoughts, and intentions, enabling them to gain insight into their behavior and its impact on themselves and others. Through various techniques, these interventions guide young individuals to empathize with others’ perspectives, recognize the influence of their emotions, and develop effective strategies to manage and regulate their emotions. These skills contribute to preventing impulsive and aggressive behaviors often associated with adverse behavior among youth. I understand the internal neuro-genetic failures internal neuro-genetic failures refer to the malfunction or abnormal development of the nervous system as a result of genetic factors. These failures can manifest in various forms, including neurological conditions. These condition has a factor in our youth today that has a significant impact on our civilization of tomorrow.

Furthermore, secure attachments and healthy relationships play a crucial role in nurturing mentalization capacities. By promoting the formation of secure attachments and providing a safe therapeutic environment, positive human connections create opportunities for young individuals to cultivate healthier interpersonal relationships. If we truly want to bring about positive change in our civil society, we need to address the dysfunction within our community, schools, and children. Understanding the science behind our condition and aligning our speech and actions accordingly is essential in this endeavor. Learning how to speak to our youth takes training. Learning how to see them takes training. The only way to change our society is to change our youths trajectory.
