Child Brain 101

Modern science now provides answers to many critical questions about how babies and small children learn about their world, and even more importantly, how babies learn to interact with other humans. This presentation discusses that learning can be positive in one set of circumstances, and problematic in the face of trauma. We will also discuss how trauma-informed strategies can be used to help children achieve success despite challenges.

Teenage Brain 101

What is happening in the brain during the adolescent years that makes interacting with teenage humans puzzling to many adults? This presentation discusses how the brain develops during adolescence, as well as how this trajectory is impacted when trauma is also present. We will also discuss how trauma-informed and cognitive-science informed strategies can be used to help teenagers achieve success despite the social challenges in the 21st Century.
