About the event

This course will be focused on learning about your own nervous system as a foundation for

better understanding and managing your emotions and behaviors. Together we will build

awareness and gather tools for staying regulated so that you can be your best self for the young

people in your care. Each week’s meeting will follow the same basic structure: 1) a guided

meditation/grounding practice, 2) a brief lesson and/or activity, and 3) a facilitated discussion
