Integrative Mental Health and Social Emotional Learning Conference

About this Event

Fourth Annual Educator Conference

As an adult when you think back to your own meaningful relationships with teachers, it is often the teacher’s warmth and care that you remember over the content of what was taught in the classroom.

Given that all learning and development occurs within relationships-- the practice and cultivation of compassionate and intentional care is paramount in developing these formative relationships with the whole child.

The continued trend and focus in education on what to teach far too often undermines how and why we teach. This trend gives primacy to content of curriculum over the creativity of learning and teaching-- placing educators at risk for forgetting the true curriculum is the living and breathing experience between teacher and student.

This professional development conference for educators aims to support and bring forth the importance and the power of cultivating presence within pedagogical relationships.

These workshops are intended to support the remembering of human relationships within education over the focus on content heavy curriculum that permeates education today.

The workshops will provide educators with a deepening of reflective and instructional practices through the use of mindfulness-, movement-, and nutritional- based practices that can be shared in any classroom.

In addition, the workshops will bring special focus on stress, screen time, and the mind-body connection with an aim to empower participants in their own home and communities to support healthy relationships and development. Finally, great emphasis will be placed on developing emotional balance for personal and professional self-care as methods to strengthen attunement within the teacher-student relationships.

***This event is limited to 80 participants and is expected to sellout***

Current Workshop Descriptions

Student stress, Screen time, and the Mind-Body connection: Implications for learning environments

This workshop explores the links between screen time and student stress as it relates to the mid- body connection. This workshop will present current research regarding the effects of prolonged and accumulative affects of screen time on neurological, psychological, and immunological health. In addition, this workshop will provide useful and meaningful measures to reduce screen time in our daily life and will promote practices to mitigate the effects of stress as it relates to school-based child development.

Vertical Intelligence

Vertical intelligence is a framing of learning and development that implies learning is an embodied process and inherent to this embodied learning is the integration of the cognitive and emotional aspects of our lives. As all humans are thinking, feeling, moving, relational, and meaning-making beings--an integrative approach to human development is necessary to support healthy relationships and meaningful life-long learning. This workshop will draw from the fields of developmental psychology, contemporary neuroscience, social learning theory, mind-body medicine, interpersonal neurobiology, and psychoneuroimmunology and will highlight an approach to support resilience, curiosity, and intrinsic motivation in the lives of students.
