Workshop Overview:

Participants will discover new tools based on the latest neuroscience to increase learning opportunities, reduce negative behavior, and improve communication between school and home. Whether you’re a brain novice or well-versed in research about trauma and the brain, you won’t want to miss this hope-filled learning experience. Participants will practice new skills and construct a plan for bringing the changes home. Facilitated activities will include strategies for reducing vicarious trauma and burnout. Participants will be able to: (1) Identify Turnaround for Children’s well-researched foundational “Building Blocks for Learning” (attachment, stress management and self-regulation) and discuss the parts of the brain involved; (2) Apply this knowledge to increase engagement of the learning brain and reduce challenging behavior; (3) Design a plan for changing or augmenting current practices.
