Educators are tasked with the responsibility to create a safe and supportive environment for our students and colleagues. In recent years, we’ve seen a marked increase in stress and trauma-related behaviors in classrooms, which is a reflection of the impact of adversity and trauma on developing brains.

Join this webinar and learn how to create safe spaces in the classroom using neuroscience and a trauma-informed approach.

You’ll learn from two experts in the field: Guy Stephens, the founder of the Alliance Seclusion and Restraint, and Dr. Lori Desautels. Guy will take us through the basics of brain science, while Dr. Desautels will provide an overview of how applied educational neuroscience and brain-aligned practices can be used to counteract challenging behaviors.

You’ll come away with practical tips and strategies for creating a safe and supportive environment for your students and colleagues.

Founder, Alliance Seclusion and Restraint
