Even amazing educators struggle to be effective when students aren’t ready to learn. Neuroscience can help us understand what is happening for educators and students in moments of dysregulation. As school-based mental health professionals, being able to practically apply this knowledge enhances our work with educators and students.
This one-of-a-kind training opportunity includes 9 hours of learning includes diving into the neurobiology of regulating through challenges, and creating and supporting regulatory environments for students and adults. Most importantly we’ll learn how to apply what our learning by using a developmental mindsets paradigm as you work with the other adults in your buildings. This means learning how to assess where educators are in their readiness to do this work so you can meet them where they are, as you support developing capacity at your site. This approach is a game-changer as it works with the resistance and challenges you may be facing as you implement a regulatory focused, educational neuroscience approach
- Participants will learn how brain states and body states impact students’ abilities to learn.
- Participants will learn the different skills and components involved in developing self-regulation skills.
- Participants will examine ways to shift daily routines to include self-reflection which supports the re-wiring of brains and re-patterning of nervous systems.
- Participants will identify appropriate expectations and goals that correspond to different arousal states, and the neuroscience behind why some strategies are more effective at certain times.
- Participants will translate knowledge into creating environments that support self-awareness and self-reflection in students, leading to the discovery of their own regulatory needs.
- Participants will identify ways to work collaboratively with others in their building(s).
- Participants will learn to differentiate the support they offer to other adults as they identify individuals’ readiness for doing trauma-informed, inclusive, SEL work.
