How do I keep up with the curriculum while teaching my students these skills?” You may think “Let’s just add teaching kids how to behave to my already-impossible list of things to do”. Perhaps you’ve thought, “Here we go again … another excuse for kids to avoid consequences; schools care more about suspension rates than they do the sanity of their own teachers”. Imagine adding strategies that take only a few minutes from your lesson plan and can benefit not only your entire class, but individual challenging students and, just as importantly, you as an educator? What if you could focus on teaching your curriculum while providing emotional safety and growth for ALL of your students instead of only one at a time? Imagine having a toolbox of strategies that you can use the next day without having to use your own money and time to find these activities. Join Theresa Fry and learn how a trauma-informed, resilience-focused approach will provide emotional safety & growth for all your students. By addressing their basic needs, you will increase their ability to self-regulate, decrease challenging behaviors and simultaneously make your job notably easier. This positive approach will enable your students to learn to help themselves, leaving everyone feeling empowered, calm and ready to learn. Objectives: • Upon completion of this seminar participants will be able to: • Communicate the importance of emotional safety and relationships as it relates to students and the classroom. • Explore the predictors of resilience using the brain science of trauma. • Determine the zones of regulation and recommend strategies to empower individual students to use these on their own. • Establish the difference between the in-class reset vs. the out-of-class reset and how consequences work in trauma-informed classrooms. • Implement Mindfulness in the classroom in a quick, efficient, and effective way. • Practice techniques to self-regulate & co-regulate. • Explore the connection between the educator’s well-being and the student’s well-being and introduce strategies that work for both.
