Raising Resilient Kids with
Kathryn Berkett from Engage Training

Kathryn Berkett

Neuroscience can help us understand many factors about ourselves, and therefore help us become more aware and controlled in our actions.
We are constantly hearing that we want our children to build resilience, which is an exceptionally important goal. However, what we need to understand if we want to increase resilience, is how this concept is built in the brain. What does it really mean to build resilience. What do we, as adults, need to provide to support this learning?
This workshop will help you understand the fundamental neuroscience aspects of building resilience. The concept of supporting our children into ‘tolerable moments of feeling’ will be introduced and unpacked.
The information will make complete sense to all those who are involved with children: adults, church leaders, teachers etc. True change requires consistent, appropriate and repeated modelling and feedback. This is why it is best that all those in the community who wish to support this move towards increased resilience, understand the information in this session.
Delivered in easy to understand language with examples that will ensure attendees will leave with a full understanding of how to move forward with the information.
While Pt 1 is excellent on its own, the second part goes into more depth, extending the research on aspects of brain development most applicable to those working with children & youth. Covering the stress response in children and its impact on behaviour.
