    • 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.

Disrupting the Cradle to Prison Pipeline: What YOU Can Do (Seattle)

Hilltop Educator Institute Presents:
Disrupting the Cradle to Prison Pipeline: What YOU Can Do
Wednesday, January 15th, 2020
Facilitated by Elise Gooi and Betty Peralta

Location: Hearing, Speech, Deaf Center (HSDC) – 1625 19th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122
Target Audience:
Education professionals (admin, educators, coaches etc.) working with children ages 0-6
Caretakers including nannies, au-pairs, and babysitters
Parents

Researchers interested in this topic

Overview:

Racism affects even babies and toddlers. Learn how to identify indicators of toxic stress in our youngest children of color, how structural racism engenders that stress, and how you can reduce it in your daily interactions.

Why I Should Attend:

The impact of race and racism on health stems largely from differences in access to resources and opportunities that can hurt or enhance health. These racial and ethnic discrimination not only negatively affect the health of babies, infants, and toddlers, but negatively affect their health across lifetimes and generations.

Aimed at reducing health disparities and advancing health equity, this workshop is an exploration of how social conditions disproportionately affect children of color, how we must address the socioeconomic factors that affect health, and how we can ultimately lift barriers of racism to ensure we send our children off to kindergarten, not to their graves.

Join us as we work towards a culture of health, where we ensure everyone has the opportunity to be as healthy as possible.

What’s Included:

Included is a tour of the Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center Preschool Classrooms! Self-guided tours are from 6:00pm – 6:20pm.

ASL Interpreters will be available for this workshop courtesy of HSDC. When asked “Do you require an ASL Interpreter for this workshop” please select “Yes.”
