Apr 16

The Whole-Brain Child | Sioux City

Apr 16, 2020

This free regional training is the perfect opportunity for clinicians, teachers, parents, and anyone else who works closely with children.

Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store.

Your preschooler refuses to get dressed.

Your fifth-grader sulks on the bench instead of playing on the field.

Do children conspire to make their parents’ lives endlessly challenging?

No – it’s just their developing brain calling the shots!

In this workshop, Tina Payne Bryson demystifies the meltdowns and aggravation, explaining in a clear and practical way the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. Dr. Bryson uses stories and humor to introduce parents to twelve Whole-Brain strategies, including:

Engage, Don’t Enrage: Keep your child thinking and listening, instead of purely reacting

Name It to Tame It: Corral raging right-brain behavior through storytelling, appealing to the left brain’s affinity for words and reasoning to calm emotional storms and bodily tension

Move It or Lose It: Use physical activities to shift your child’s emotional state

Let the Clouds of Emotion Roll By: Guide your children when they are stuck on a negative emotion, and help them understand that feelings come and go

Connect Through Conflict: Use discord to encourage empathy and greater social success

By applying these immediately practical strategies to everyday parenting, you can turn outbursts, arguments, and fears into opportunities to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth.

The result? Kids who are happier, healthier, and more fully themselves.

This presentation provides the latest research with a special emphasis on neuroplasticity and the changing brain - presented in a way that's clear, interesting, and immediately practical. Whether you're looking to use this at home, in the classroom, with your grandchildren, or in your professional office in your work with children - Dr. Bryson will provide a new framework for understanding children, as well as strategies to help young people move from reactivity to resilience.
