This session will reground participants in the neuroscience of stress, the brain, and our bodies. We will apply this knowledge into programmatic and instructional practices that create a healing-centered environment for teachers and learners alike. Presented by Lucy Rosario and Andrea Echelberger.
Session 1 (Friday, May 13) will focus on the neuroscience of stress and trauma and how it impacts your brain, body, and learning. It will also delve into teacher well-being with brain-based strategies for preventing compassion fatigue and improving attunement in order to increase instructional effectiveness with trauma-impacted learners.
Session 2 (Friday, May 20) will focus on programmatic structure and instructional practices to create a healing centered environment that will create an inclusive and positive learning experience and improve learner outcomes.
