Information about the Speaker:
Lauren Etu, MS CAS RYT, is a 20-year veteran school psychologist. She has worked with pre- schoolers to high school students across Western New York. Witnessing the impact of trauma, stress, and mental illness on children and their families drew Lauren to become a registered yoga teacher, as well as a certified trauma and resilience practitioner. After watching reward systems and behavior plans continue to miss the mark, she knew there had to be something different for these students. She learned recent neuroscience research has shown trauma and stress are stored in the body—you have to use your body to work through and process those emotions.
Hyperactive? Easily distracted? Super sensitive? Irritable? Hood up and head down? Destructive? Maybe this describes a student you know.
In this training, you will learn strategies that can be used to "hack" into your students' nervous systems to bring them into a calm, ready-to-learn state.
Yes, you'll learn the theory behind why these techniques work, but more importantly: you will leave with actual interventions you can use immediately. There is nothing worse than sitting through a training and thinking "yeah, that's all really interesting research but what am I supposed to do on Monday?!”
These are strategies that are good for the whole classroom, not just one student. Actually, they're great for you too. Burnout is not a fun experience and you will learn about the trauma you may experience as an educator.
All it takes is one adult for a child to be resilient and bounce back. Gain the knowledge of neuroscience to boost your resiliency superpowers in the classroom.
