BRAIN FOCUSED STRATEGIES FOR DEVELOPING SOCIAL EMOTIONAL HEALTH
Heather Bryant, M.Ed. and Michelle Kinder, M.Ed., LPC
Social emotional health is more predictive of long term success than strong academic skills. In addition, trauma, abuse and toxic stress interrupt a child’s ability to learn and develop healthy relationships.
The research on this is solid, but these findings haven’t necessarily translated into consistent practices in our schools, daycares or even in our families. Using the Momentous Institute model for developing social emotional health, this session will provide participants with a variety of tried-and-true activities, resources and mindsets that are easily implemented in the classroom and in the home. The prioritizing of social emotional health in concert with rigorous academics and the weaving of social emotional health strategies throughout the day has led to impressive long term outcomes for Momentous School graduates. It has also transformed the school culture and climate and has minimized behavioral issues. This workshop will prepare you to build a stronger focus on social emotional health in your classroom, workplace or home.
