Speaker
Tara Brown, President, Learner's Edge Consulting


Description
Many youth are "running from lions" in their life as they face a myriad of challenges and threats due to their life circumstances. This session covers the neurological impact of stress and cortisol as well as the importance of emotional safety and positive connections. Examine how emotions play a huge role in behavior/decisions and learn proven strategies to help youth change perspective, increase positive behaviors and stop running so they can start learning.
