For teachers, youth workers, and parents
Have you ever wished there was an owner’s guide to the developing brain that you could share with your 10-18 year-olds? One that would not only help you understand their brains better, but would also give you practical methods for teaching them how to better understand, manage and develop their own? Now there is!
In this powerful, highly interactive two-day program, you’ll receive tools and techniques to help young people:
- Build essential “grit” and resilience through the understanding of neuroplasticity and change
- Deal with overwhelm and stress more effectively
- Understand their own motivation (and the impact on their brain of being under-stimulated)
- Explore the difference between being “on task” and being inspired (and how to better access both)
- Become more aware of reactive tendencies and develop practical tools and techniques for recovery
All tools and concepts can either be taught as stand-alone lessons, or embedded within day-to-day teaching/activities.
Bringing NeuroAcademy to Your City
NeuroAcademy operates on a sponsorship model, with a local not-for-profit, school or district supporting costs and logistics. The local sponsor may choose to bring us in to work only with their own staff or teachers, or serve as a convener, charging a training fee to each participant (maximum 36 participants) to recoup costs. Please contact [email protected] for pricing.
The sponsor provides training room, tea, coffee and snacks, and manages all local promotion and registration. We provide customized marketing materials and will also promote in our networks and on our website, if desired.
Please contact [email protected] if you are interested in bringing NeuroAcademy to your organization or school.
