Week 1: BEHAVIOR = COMMUNICATION of an unmet need
This dynamic workshop combines contemporary neuroscience with tangible socio-emotional tools to identify the underlying emotional needs and feelings that drive behavior. When we understand how to develop and support healthy brain functions we are able to shift our relationships from fear and control to love and safety then we can build meaningful and sustainable connections with the children we care for.
Week 2: Healing ANGER & STRESS
Transform your hurt by uncovering the roots of trauma, anger and stress. We will take an intentional look at the dysregulated brain and learn how to build regulation tools through repairing our inner dialogue. Participants will learn how to create sustainable relationships by increasing their window of tolerance and healing and repairing disconnects with the children we care for.
Week 3: BOUNDARIES
Freedom with limits, clear boundaries and confident caregivers are essential for children to thrive. Boundaries are unique to each of us, let’s discover our limits. We will explore and become aware of the everyday unconscious messages we send. Together we will shift away from control and passivity toward healthy limits, while maintaining flexibility and compassion.
Week 4: CONNECTED COMMUNICATION
Changing the way we speak changes everything! Unlock empathy and connection by revealing unconscious reaction patterns. When we reframe behavior, and how we respond to it, we can connect and guide children’s big emotions in ways that support healthy communication. Participants will learn to decipher the difference between behavioral strategies and real needs.
