We are trained to be teachers, not psychologists, yet day by day we cope with learners whose behavior and performance have been deeply affected by all kinds of social and personal trauma. How can we best help and support them without disturbing the rhythm and balance of the other members of the group?
This course supports teachers and educators to understand the basics of trauma and how our autonomic nervous system pulls us into dysregulated states. We will explore how neuroception unconsciously affects behavior, and our ability to learn and connect with others.
You will learn some techniques and classroom management strategies to cope with distress, teach emotional intelligence and help offset the negative consequences of trauma.
We will get to know our autonomic nervous systems through the lens of Polyvagal Theory, exploring without judgment how to recognize when we are in a dysregulated state and how to return to a place of calm, connection, and social engagement. When we can successfully self-regulate, we are in a better position to support others effectively.
You will take away a variety of resources to create safe spaces in your classrooms. Teaching self-regulation by modeling and guiding students through exercises and games that have a direct and positive effect on strengthening the vagal tone, therefore, teaching the essential skill of self-regulating their emotional state.
Your new knowledge will support you to create a positive impact on the class relationship and the whole school atmosphere.
