Distant RC Trainer Webinar - December 10, 2019 

Using Modern Science of Brain and Body to Create High-Performing Organizations

Training Description

Our growing awareness of the functioning of our brains and our bodies has created a new realization of the conditions necessary for people to grow and thrive. A sense of safety is the underlying condition necessary for learning, connecting and relaxing. Understanding how both our brains and our polyvagal nervous systems respond to signals of danger and safety can offer concrete steps to improve the functioning of staff and the organization as a whole. 

This webinar will discuss how what is being termed NEAR Science (Neuroscience, Epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences and Resilience) can create optimal environments for staff excellence. Participants will receive specific, actionable tools for increasing reflection, emotional regulation, and engagement. When staff feel they are connected with each other and the agency, and are using and developing their best selves, they are calmer and more effective. We will share strategies for developing a protective social environment.
