Live Session: March 16th at 10:15 AM - 12:15 PM CDT

This session will review the areas of our brain that are connected and stimulated through relational connection or disconnection. It will further expand on attachment patterns and how they play a role in the way we connect and understand others. This is critical when we are trying to understand the behaviors and needs of children who are struggling. We will discuss tips for de-escalating difficult moments, and ways to help educators, caregivers and those who work with today’s youth process and provide compassion to ourselves and the children in our care.
