Understanding Trauma Informed Care and its Impact on Students
Trauma Informed Care is a strengths-based framework that is grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma. Many of our students experience years of toxic stress and toxic home environments that shift them into living every moment of every day in survival mode. These students have become hardwired for conflict and primal survival leaving them unable to navigate the demands of higher education. This is a brain issue not a behavioral issues. This session helps educators understand how Adverse Childhood Experiences alters the brains and bodies of children. Participants will learn the basic concepts of trauma informed systems of care and how it affects the brain and students on a daily basis.

Brain Science: How Experts are Made, Not Born
Have you ever been amazed by someone’s ability to play the violin, excel at a sport, solve math problems, or write the most creative stories and thought to yourself that they were born with some innate gift that is unattainable? Current research suggests that there is nothing exceptional about these people and each of us, with the proper conditions, can become experts in almost any field. Participants will gain an understanding of the conditions required to transform themselves and/or their students from novices to experts in any subject area. Among the subjects discussed will be the benefits of deep practice, the science behind developing expertise (10,000 hour myth), physical changes that occur in the brain, myelination, and establishing a culture that fosters expertise.
