Description

The Brain, Stress Response and Emotional Resiliency Training at the Zilber School of Public Health.


Trainer: Dr. Anna Silberg

Core Competencies Addressed: Health, Program Activities, Professionalism/Professional Development, Sustainability/Advocacy

Target Audience: Direct Service, Management & Supervision, Administration


About this Training: This workshop will focus on key understandings of how the stress response is triggered in our brains and bodies. Participants will learn how the brain develops in stages and the evolutionary purpose of our nervous system’s flight, fight, fright, and freeze reaction. Through personal practice we will examine the link between strong emotions and the brain’s activation of the stress response. We will examine personal triggers for our stress response as well as triggers for the youth we serve. Upon examination of these triggers, participants will learn how to explain the stress response to others by demonstrating simple tools to explain the brain science. Additionally, we will practice research based strategies that calm the nervous system, stop the stress response and bring us to the highest levels of our brain, which allows us to be emotionally resilient and make thoughtful choices in difficult times rather than react unconsciously. By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe and explain a basic model of the brain that relates to the body’s stress response

  • Identify and summarize the 2 parts of nervous system and how that relates to the body’s stress and relaxation responses

  • Differentiate stress for themselves (e.g. Positive, Negative, Toxic) and how to assess other’s stress profiles

  • Recognize and interpret the physiology of emotions and use that information to develop resilient coping mechanisms when strong emotions are present

  • Demonstrate at least three techniques that regulate the nervous system, slow down the stress response, help us access the highest levels of our brain

  • Illustrate and employ the above mentioned concepts, topics, and practices with youth with whom they work
