Mr. Joshua Metz | Riding the Learning Wave: Harnessing Neuroscience to Improve Compliance and Participation.
Mr. Metz will provide an overview of how the nervous system works and its impact on attention, regulation and engagement. Mr. Metz will then introduce the concept of the “Learning Wave” as a way to understand how the brain and body responds to environments that require compliance and participation (lessons in school and routines at home). Examples from school and home will be used to demonstrate how teachers and parents can be more effective in helping kids thrive.
Dr. Krisi Guadagnoli, PsyD | Managing Stress in Children
Like adults, children can develop stress symptoms due to a variety of stressors. In this interactive talk, Dr. Guadagnoli will discuss signs and symptoms of stress and how to avoid stressful conditions for your child. She will talk about tips and techniques parents can use to engage in positive ways with their children to avoid stressful conditions at home and at school.
Dr. Guadagnoli co-founded MindWell in 2004 and has been a licensed clinical psychologist for over 15 years. After becoming a parent herself, she had a vision of developing a clinical practice where children and families could be treated with warmth, empathy and excellent clinical services.
There will also be a 15 minute Q & A at the conclusion of the talk. Please join us!
