This series focuses on the science behind emotions. Did you know that emotions are 200-5,000 times faster than thought? Do you know what happens in the brain and the body that produces many of the emotion responses that you get from students? Many of our current understandings of discipline are based upon a cognitive approach and ignore the science of emotions.
- Session 1: Investigate the causes of the “in-your-face” explosion. Learn quick, practical strategies for helping individuals calm down and regulate their responses.
- Session 2: What motivates behavior? Explore a strategy to change the motivation for behavior, and learn why discipline strategies work with some students and not others.
- Session 3: Learn how male and female brains process emotion differently, and better strategies for addressing and preventing violence.
