More Good Days:
Brain-Based Strategies for Parenting in Challenging Times

Youth today are facing incredible circumstances that are causing anxiety and depression to rise and taking a toll on their physical and emotional health. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated three things that the brain hates: chronic unpredictability, social isolation, and physical and emotional restraint. In this experiential learning session, facilitators will focus on how to meet our brain's need for predictability, belonging and connection, and voice and choice and we see the impact of this stress and trauma on our kids’ interactions and behavior both at home and at school. This informative, engaging, and experiential learning opportunity explores the neuroscience around stress and trauma and provides parents with simple yet powerful research-based strategies that they can use immediately to support their children and empower them to thrive.

Parents will learn how to boost their own social-emotional competencies, well-being, and resilience in order to bring their best selves to each new day. They will explore new strategies for strengthening ongoing trusting connections with their children at home, and how to help their child build better relationships with others. Parents will learn mindful strategies for enhancing self and social awareness and increasing capacity for focus, attention, and presence for themselves and their children. Parents will learn strategies that they can engage in with their kids in order to build important skills that have been shown to strengthen resilience and the capacity to be happier and more successful in school, college, career, and life. The facilitator will lead parents in discussion and activities that they can replicate at home in order to strengthen relationships and social-emotional competencies of themselves and the whole family.

By participating in this transformational session, participants will:

  • Understand the impact of trauma on the developing brain and
  • Identify behaviors and learning challenges that may come as a
    result of trauma
  • Explore the idea of emotional contagion and how our own
    presence impacts the rooms we are in
  • Learn how to use focused attention practices and brain breaks to
    help them and their children to self-regulate
  • Learn strategies to strengthen relationships and create
    predictable environments that support resilience


    All Thriving YOUniversity keynotes and workshops are built with the science of
    learning in mind. With that said, they start off with activities to build belonging and connection. Learning is facilitated through lecture, storytelling, videos, discussion, and activities, and is chunked with brain breaks as well as both individual and group processing reflections strategically designed to keep participants engaged, have them connect the learning to personal experience and prior knowledge, and to help make the learning stick.
