Dr. Reggie begins by leading an experiential exercise of the most effective way to prevent and intervene with our greatest challenges as educators. The tools she demonstrates are for all of us. They quickly decrease the stress that is interfering with everyone's best performance, teachers and students alike. She explains what we need to know about brain development and brain functioning in order to understand our students (and ourselves) better. We will learn how and why we misunderstand a growing number of our students and intervene with them without long-term results becomes clear.
