About the event

In the wake of a mental health crisis declared by the United States Surgeon General, Dr. Christy Kane’s presentation stands as a beacon of hope and expertise. Addressing the escalating challenges faced by educators amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, she unveils vital instructional strategies for working with traumatized youth. Drawing on brain science, Dr. Kane explores the impacts and types of trauma, unraveling the four trauma responses commonly encountered by teachers. Participants gain insights into why stressed brains struggle to learn and acquire practical techniques to help students develop self-regulation skills, fostering a conducive learning environment.  Dr. Kane's presentation introduces easy-to-implement tools, including her innovative Top Down Bottom Up model™ for student and teacher stabilization. Attendees delve into the Daily Brain Engagement™ model, focusing on essential inputs for mental wellness: social, cognitive, emotional, and physical. Backed by her extensive research, including studies from UCLA utilizing the Window of Tolerance and the Healthy Mind Platter, Dr. Kane equips educators to manage student behavior effectively.  

The session isn't just about tools—it’s a transformative experience. Dr. Kane guides attendees on restructuring negative thoughts, confronting negative emotions, addressing avoidance behaviors, and soothing involuntary reactions. Moreover, she offers concrete strategies to demystify the concept of a 'mental health crisis,' empowering educators to develop tailored solutions for families, students, and colleagues.  Dr. Kane’s presentation transcends typical mental health workshops. It’s a call to action, urging schools to become centers of resilience. By training non-mental health professionals, such as teachers, principals, and coaches, in daily practices supporting vulnerable children and teens, Dr. Kane pioneers a movement, transforming classrooms into sanctuaries of healing and growth. Attendees leave not just informed but inspired, ready to implement tangible change in their schools and communities.
