The Neuroscience of Belonging (Abbreviated Session) | Newberry

The Neuroscience of Belonging (Abbreviated Session)

Monday, November 1, 2021



Kristin Hovious, SEL Chicago
Newberry Teachers' Consortium

Humans are social creatures and the brain is a social organ. In this workshop, we will explore the neuroscience behind belonging, and how we can use these intellectual concepts to create actionable strategies for modeling and teaching self-regulation in your classroom. This virtual workshop will also introduce participants to the tools of Authoritative Leadership to increase practitioner fidelity for centering dignity and belonging in any classroom community. (These concepts will be explored more in-depth at a 3-hr. seminar with Ms. Hovious in February ’22.)
