Short Description

In this workshop for educators and schools, we will help you demystify behaviour as we explore essential neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology for the classroom. Understand why behaviour is a symptom of a dysregulated nervous system and explore a range of evidenced based strategies that help improve safety, connection and regulation.

This evidenced based training is the foundation of your work toward becoming a Trauma Smart Educator and building a Trauma Smart School.  Learn why connection before correction is the best approach for boosting whole brain learning, engagement, and academic outcomes.
