Brain Love: Proactive Counseling Practices and Interventions Based on the Latest Research in Neuroscience, Trauma, and Positive Psychology

 Presented by: Lyndsay Morris, M.Ed, RYT-200

Thursday, November 7th, 2019

1:00pm - 5:00pm 

Isn’t it odd that the brain is the mechanism we use to learn, but it’s hardly taught about in school? The brain is the control center for our thoughts, words, and actions and when we focus on the brain’s response to stress, rather than behaviors (symptoms), we create powerful change.
 
When students understand how their brain learns best and the “why” behind their impulsivity, anger, frustration, and lack of focus, we empower them to choose positive choices that promote self-regulation, focus, and compassion. In this session, you will learn simple practices, innovative counseling techniques, and effective interventions based on the latest research in neuroscience, trauma, and positive psychology.

Learning Objectives: 

Through fun, engaging activities, ""priming the brain"" strategies, and mindful practices, participants will:
1. Deepen your understanding of the human brain, human needs, and the impact of integrating trauma-informed practices.
2. Experience 40+ activities and strategies that build connection to self and others, teaching self-regulation, focus, and kindness.
3. Understand how to teach healthy ways to release stress/trauma from the body and learn how to create a Regulation Station in your classroom or office.
4. Develop a trauma-informed action plan to immediately integrate these practices into your setting.
