Dr. Lori's sessions will engage us in learning about the nervous system, the brain, and the practices that mitigate trauma and adversity, so that we can build resiliency within ourselves and with the students we serve. 

Topics that Lori will unpack in more depth as connected to resources on her website are: 

Dr. Lori Desautels -

Our Journey Through the Developing Nervous System as We Rewire Our Perceptions of Discipline 

In this presentation, we will explore how our nervous systems are impacted by adversity, trauma, and experiences of resiliency through deepened connections and sensory regulation. Behaviors are only signals or indicators that the brain and body are struggling in survival states of functioning. In our time together, we will explore how we get out in front of the behavior through our procedures, routines, and transitions. We will also explore the differences between co-regulation and coercive regulation which is the foundation of discipline practices that move us through challenging moments while attending to our emotional, social, and physiological health. 

Educator Nervous System States and Co-Regulation Through the Lens of Applied Educational Neuroscience

Adult nervous system states drive child and adolescent social, emotional, and cognitive well-being. In this session, we will explore how trauma and adversity impact the developing brains and bodies of our students and the powerful implications that adult regulation states positively create for a student's social, emotional, and academic growth.   I will share powerful regulatory practices for adults and students.   In this session we will explore co-regulation practices as these relate to healthy brain and body development in our students. When a calm nervous system can connect with a dysregulated nervous system, we are able to share an emotionally available safe space and presence that can upregulate positive emotions while down regulating negative emotions. 

Please preview Dr. Lori's website of FREE resources - Revelations in Education - to gain understanding of her work. Lori will draw information from her books - Connections over Compliance and Intentional Neuroplasticity.
