50 Proven & Effective Thinking and Self-Regulation Strategies
Change a Brain, Change a Life
In just a few short weeks, Dr. Lynne Kenney and I will be sharing an incredible amount of content with you about helping kids calm down, self-regulate, think and learn. We'll be digging deep into the latest research and sharing tricks, tips and strategies that will make a difference in your classroom, home or clinic. This online training for teachers, parents and clinicians is being offered through Jack Hirose and Associates, Inc.
Learn a Better Way
With improvements in research methodologies utilizing fMRI to measure brain activation, we are quickly learning that the behaviour management techniques commonly used in the past not only are ineffective but may increase stress which decrease both thinking skills and self-regulation in children and adolescents. Establishing secure connections with kids, partnering with them in problem solving and using neuro-biologically rooted strategies such as solid nutrition, music, art and movement are more effective ways to improve both learning and behaviour.
Move Away from Punishment and
Towards Better Behavior
Teachers, parents and clinicians are looking for empirically-based methods of behavioural intervention that move away from punishment and consequences to improve learning and behaviour. Bloom is one such approach. Grounded in neuroscience, integrating the most current research in music and movement, Bloom helps grow compassionate children with better thinking and self-regulation skills.
Adopting these more effective interventions requires a perspective shift for the adults supporting children and adolescents in developing these burgeoning skills. The Bloom approach provides a two-pronged method: helping adults understand the theoretical underpinnings of the methodology, so they can more meaningfully embrace the approach and employ it with fidelity. Through the use of case studies and interactive demonstration, Dr. Lynne Kenney and Wendy Young, the authors of Bloom: 50 things to say, think and do with anxious, angry and over-the-top kids will provide you with practical, effective and easily adaptable skill-building techniques and tools for children and adolescents with behaviour and mood management issues. Leave this workshop with strategies, activities and tools for your office, home and school to help children and adolescents achieve their full behavioral, academic and social potential.
