An Evening with Heather: "Battling Bad Behaviors"
Video Recording, Audio MP3 Recording, & Resources
Neuroscience Meets Disobedience
With the advancements in technology, we are now able to see how trauma impacts a child at both the neurological and brain levels. While this information is fascinating, concrete, and factual, understanding how it translates into everyday application is a whole other discussion. When it comes to working with a child impacted by trauma, the reality is that in the moment when the child is yelling, screaming, or completely disregarding any adult authority, the science is the last thing on your mind!
Bridging the Gap!
Heather T. Forbes, LCSW will help you gain a deeper insight into how to bridge the gap between science and bad behaviors. The more you are able to link these two together, the more you will be equipped to translate the science into effective techniques and solutions, no matter what behavior your child or student exhibits during these “raw” moments. As a parent herself, one of Heather’s pet peeves was sitting through highly scientific conferences showing the latest and greatest of neuroscience from world renowned experts in the field of trauma but only to go home to a battleground of acting out behaviors with her children and feeling completely powerless and incompetent with no ability to help these intense moments
It's Really Not About the Behavior
In this webinar, Heather will clearly and succinctly explain how, when we look beyond the behaviors, the science really is giving us the answers. Her ability to break the scientific concepts down into everyday application will give you everything you are need to help a child not only change his/her behavior, but to heal from traumatic experiences. She will give multiple examples of typical behaviors we see from children impacted by trauma and apply the science in a practical and common sense way. You’ll finish the webinar feeling like, “Finally, now I get what this actually looks like in ‘real’ life!”
