Bridging the Gap Between What Experts Know and What Happens at Home & School
In this DVD, best-selling author Dr. Tina Payne Bryson (co-author with Dan Siegel of The Whole-Brain Child) discusses the challenges she most frequently addresses with parents, students, educators, and professionals when it comes to kids in the classroom. At school, many children have emotional, academic, and social hurdles to overcome. This DVD will discuss how to create new associations with learning and the school environment, and how to help kids build skills and become resilient.
Using stories, case examples, and plenty of humor, Dr. Bryson explains ten simple, scientifically grounded strategies that will help children transition back to school, be confident students, and have a successful academic year. Attendees will be exposed to the most important and frequent perspectives and strategies Dr. Bryson teaches parents, educators, and mental health professionals in her office as a pediatric and adolescent psychologist, and as the School Counselor at St. Mark’s School in Altadena, California.
