On Thursday June 23, 2016 located in Parlor B in the Charleston Civic Center, from 3:10-4:00pm at the 2016 Kidstrong Conference, our President Katrina Jefferson will be presenting, “What’s On Your Mind?”

 

 

 

"What's On Your Mind?"

A presentation that describes the neuroscience of the brain, how we learn and use the keys to success as well as what blocks learning and shuts and locks the door to success. Play Therapy is a method of creating safety for the counselor and child to work together collaboratively to build new neural pathways, to develop or build self-regulation, promote learning and increase opportunities for success in the classroom. Counselors will be able to identify the source/s of negative and disruptive behaviors and actions that point to solutions to reduce difficulties in the classroom. Behavior and neurological changes become evident and can be easily tacked and measured. Through Play Therapy, counselors will learn keys to unlock the brain with tools and techniques to promote safety, trust, communication, emotional literacy, and learning.

From this session, participants will be able to:

 

•Increase understanding of play therapy in the school setting to improve student well-being.

 

•Identify the source/s of a student’s negative and disruptive behaviors and actions that point to solutions to reduce difficulties in the classroom.

 

•Apply strategies to unlock the brain through tools and techniques to promote safety, trust, communication, emotional literacy, and learning.
