No community is immune from the impact of toxic stress. How can you become a buffering adult who helps children deal with toxic stress and build resilience?

Learn:

 

    • The brain science around what trauma, toxic stress and insecure attachment do to growing brains.

 

    • How to lead a classroom to benefit all students – including those exposed to trauma.

 

    • How to teach youth why their brain sometimes “won’t cooperate” and how they can learn to self-regulate.

 

    • How to use strengths-based plans to foster learning for all youth exposed to trauma.

 

    • How all of us can be a buffer against toxic stress for the youth in our communities.
