Relationships, Behaviour, and An Integrated Brain
with Tina Payne Bryson, PhD

In this 2 hour online training, based on her two New York Times BESTSELLERS, Dr. Bryson presents the latest scientific research—with a special emphasis on neuroplasticity and the changing brain—in a way that’s clear, interesting, and immediately practical. The focus is on better understanding the role of experience and focused attention on the ever-developing brain.

Using stories, case examples, power point, videos, and humor, Dr. Bryson encourages clinicians to keep their own developing brains in mind as they nurture their clients’ growing minds. She provides creative examples of how she uses brain science in her own practice to help children and adolescents see things differently and acquire new tools to develop resilience and feel hope about achieving lasting change in their lives.

At the end of the training, clinicians will have a new framework for understanding their client's and their own work, along with several specific Whole-Brain strategies to help young people move from reactivity to resilience.

"Behavior is communication about what skills a child still needs to build, or what they are not yet able to do well. So if we want a child to change their behavior, we need to change ours. We need to start by being curious, we need to identify what skills the child is communicating he doesn’t have yet, and then we need to rise up to help the child build those skills." - Dr Bryson read more

"The bottom line is that if you want to raise a kid who is hearty and tough, you should soothe them any chance you get. When you do that, it gives their brain practice going from a reactive state into a regulated state so they can do that for themselves and can handle the hard things that life will inevitably bring. The research doesn't show that kids can get spoiled or become fragile from too much attention or love or affection or nurturing. The research shows that where kids can get "spoiled" is when there are not rules and boundaries that are enforced and they don't get practice respecting limits." - Dr Bryson read more
