Neural Renovation: Adapting to the Developing Brains of Youth in Crisis

Educational Neuroscience shows us that the brain is remarkably plastic. With each experience and with each bit of information absorbed, the developing brains of youth are fundamentally changing. As connection through crisis occurs in rich and supportive environments, developing brains are rapidly working to remodel themselves, resulting in more efficient & integrated neural networks. In this session, learn how the developing brain shapes which circuits remain active and which are pruned away. 


Participants will learn how the developing nervous system rapidly changing to become more efficient with new experiences, conditions, and environments. In doing so, participants will gain a variety of research-backed strategies to foster growth, safety, and well-being through trauma-accommodating interactions.
