Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Awareness, Behavior Change, Call to Action

Description: 
Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.

Self Care Cafe: Come Fill Your Cup
Limited Capacity filling up

Learning Objectives & Rationale:
  • Teachers will learn that self care can positively impact the individual, students, PLCs, and overall school culture.
  • Teachers will be immersed in self care practices
  • Teachers will recognize the need for self care, and understand the importance of prioritizing self-care, personally and professionally
  • Teachers will develop a self-preserving mindset

"You cannot pour from an empty cup." As educators we often put ourselves "on the backburner" thinking that by putting our students first, we are doing what is best for them. What we don’t realize is that when we prioritize our selves, our students and colleagues stand to benefit. Join us as we explore the benefits of self care, igniting a renewal both personally and professionally. Exercise your passion, rediscover you joy, and reconnect with your peace! A happy teacher = a happy class!

Modalities/Implementation Practices:
  • Model self care strategies
  • Offer personalized learning options
  • Allow teachers to formulate plans for self care through discourse

The Five Protective Factors: How Teachers Can Support Families in Building Resilience in Their Students (Part 1 of 3)
Limited Capacity filling up


This is for both Pre-school and K-2 Teachers
Part 1 of 3

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Protective factors are conditions in families and communities that, when present, increase the health and well-being of children and families. These attributes serve as buffers, helping parents find resources, support, or coping strategies that allow them to parent effectively, even under stress. Research has shown that the protective factors are linked to a lower incidence of child abuse and neglect.

After this training participants will be able to:
- List five protective factors that help keep families strong and prevent child abuse and neglect.
- Identify multiple strategies and everyday actions that help families to build those protective factors.
- Understand what it means to work with families in a strength-based way.

Description: 
When a child experiences adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), it can have life-long consequences for physical and mental health. But, one caring adult can make a difference. That's why we know building protective factors in parents and communities is important.

This session will discuss the five protective factors and how teachers and school communities can work to build these protective factors. The five protective factors are: Social and Emotional Competence, Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development, Social Connections, Concrete Support, and Resilience

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Small group discussion and activities, videos, some large group teaching, facilitated conversation

Limited Capacity seats available

Target Audience (Elementary, Secondary, Other): 
Any Grade, Coaches/Leaders, School Counselors & Social Workers
Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Learners in this workshop will learn the effects of trauma on childhood development and how this impacts student learning in the classroom.  They will learn practical strategies to meet these students' needs.  They will be able to implement these strategies within the context of the regular education classroom setting.  
Description: 
Today's educators face the challenge of reaching children who have experienced profound trauma and stressors within their personal and family life. In order to effectively teach these children, educators must understand the effects of trauma on the human brain and implement strategies that foster interpersonal connections and allow students to access cognitive development.

Trauma Informed Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Desired outcomes for participants include the following:
Participants will better understand trauma and its presentation in children and adolescents
Participants will be able to recognize trauma symptoms in the students we serve
Participants will feel equipped to appropriately intervene to optimize clients learning and reduce frustration for teachers, students, and families
Participants will adequately view classroom needs in a trauma-informed lens
Participants will be able to identify individual goals when it comes to working with students who have experienced trauma

Description: 
The session content will include defining trauma and enhance the participant's knowledge on understanding trauma, its presentation in children and adolescents, and explain strategies to utilize. This will increase student learning and engagement by supplying the participant with strategies to implement in his/her classroom that promotes a learning environment that is welcoming and nurturing while supplying a safe place to learn. This session will also identify how the brain and trauma operate together. Trauma over stimulates the “protective” part of the brain and it gets stuck in “flight, fight, freeze” mode.  The other areas of the brain don’t have the opportunity to develop, leading to learning, social, and behavioral problems. Practical tips are included in the presentation to assist with classroom management and being proactive before a  trauma-informed outburst occurs. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices: Modalities include: powerpoint presentation, group, and individual activities, modeling behaviors

Make It Brain-Based: A Toolkit for Successful Learning
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: Participants will:
- Identify how the brain processes new information and learns.
- Inventory and interpret multiple brain-based practices for self-care, student learning, and a positive classroom culture.
- Experience brain-based practices during the session and evaluate them for effectiveness.
- Develop self-directed and time-bound goals for implementing brain-based practices (3 total: self-care, student learning, & classroom culture).
- Continue to generate new brain-based goals and communicate with a Brain-Based Team into the future.

Description: 
No matter your role, school setting, or grade level, everyone has at least two things in common:
1. We all have a brain.
2. We all work with other people that have brains too.
Simple, yet powerful! Harnessing the power and intricacies of the human brain can enhance learning, classroom culture, and self-care. Your brain will be actively engaged during this hands-on, collaborative session as you explore how the brain learns, discover specific brain-based practices, and develop self-directed goals for implementation. You will also be immersed in the learning as you experience several brain-based practices as the learner. You will leave this session with your very own Brain-Based Toolkit to assist you in future learning and implementation. Come with your thinking caps on!

Before the session, we encourage you to research brain-based learning topics that interest you. This is not required, but encouraged. (Hint: This itself is a brain-based strategy!)

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
During the session (and even before), participants will experience multiple brain-based strategies that I will point out including:
- Pre-Acquisition: The session description will ask participants to research brain-based topics of interest beforehand.
- Mind Map & Self-Assessment: The brain needs to know its goals and its destination. We will use a proficiency scale for this during this session that participants will also use to assess themselves on their goals after the session.
- Pre-Visualization: Participants will visualize future success before their initial learning and goal-setting. Then, we will again visualize success at the end of the session after participants have created their goals.

SEL in Real Life
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
There is much adieu about social and emotional learning and the effects on the classroom. Actually, making the SEL(Social and Emotional Learning)  and behavior modifications are similar to a delicate dance carried out by only the brave. The participants will take away real life examples of success and failures with regards to SEL. Grounded research and strategies will be offered as well as creating a community to grow together.

Description: 
How in the world am I supposed to have time for one more thing? Sounds like the mantra of nearly all of us in education right now, doesn't it. However, brain research has shown that with just a simple relationship an understanding of the student outside the classroom can have a tremendous impact on their ability to learn. Take some time to join us in a “real” conversation about what this can look like without letting go of the academics and without allowing the student to use their emotions as a crutch or an excuse.

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Presentations, question and answer, then collaboration.
