Eight friendly sessions

Sessions 1: Understanding physical and emotional functioning

Session 2: Noticing and changing unhelpful behaviors

Session 3: Managing your mind and perspective (s)

Session 4: Overcoming stress at work and home

Session 5: Building personal development practices

Session 6: Problem-solving time and output demands

Stressed brains can’t learn. That was the nugget of neuroscience that Jim Sporleder, principal of a high school riddled with violence, drugs and truancy, took away from an educational conference in 2010. Three years later, the number of fights at Lincoln Alternative High School had gone down by 75% and the graduation rate had increased five-fold.

Join us for a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary, Paper Tigers, followed by a panel discussion on  Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and trauma-informed practices. Registration is $10 and covers the cost of dinner. Contact Betsy Blanks with questions.
