Join leading neuroscience expert Kathryn Berkett to unpack the research on how the brain works and how neuroscience can better inform our interactions with others.
Understanding the stress response activation
How being in a state of stress can physically impact us
Physiology of creating a state of calm – how we stay calm, focused and healthy
The work in schools is increasing in complexity and intensity. Teaching staff are dealing with unprecedented levels of behaviour and increased expectations. Teaching has always been a demanding role, but many factors in our modern world are changing the dynamics exponentially.
For this reason, understanding the brain and how we neurologically and physiologically develop and react is essential for all those working in schools. It will help us understand much more intricately about the stress response, and how we can get better at recognising it and ‘resetting’.
This information is especially important when working with those children who may not have had optimum environments in the early years. This training will inform adults about themselves, but also help us understand those we work with.
Once we understand the stress response activation we will build on this to consider long term strategies for wellness. The age old concept of conditioning (Pavlov and his Dog) will be used to explore how we can develop a more effective and efficient calming capacity. We will also learn the importance of engaging ourselves in ‘multiple moments of tolerable stress’ throughout our lifetime. This increases our physical capacity to activate that calm, and improves our ability to feel calm more often, faster, and under higher levels of stress.
It is certainly worth coming to find out about!
