Description de l'évenement

Speaker: Lynne Kenney, Psy.D.

This one-day workshop will give you 20 effective self regulation strategies to better understand and intervene with children who have challenges with sensory processing, dysregulation, anxiety and executive function. Dr. Kenney will integrate research from neuroscience, kinesiology, occupational therapy, music and speech/language therapy. We will explore cognitive and movement activities
to improve learning and behaviour.

With improvements in research methodologies utilizing fMRI to measure brain activation, we are quickly learning that the behaviour management techniques commonly used in the past not only are ineffective but may increase stress which decrease both thinking skills and self-regulation in children and adolescents. Establishing secure connections with kids, partnering with them in problem solving and using neuro-biologically rooted strategies such as solid nutrition, music, art and movement are more effective ways to improve both learning and behaviour.

Parents, teacher and clinicians are looking for empirically-based methods of behavioural intervention that move away from punishment and consequences to improve learning and behaviour. Grounded in neuroscience, integrating the most current research in music and movement, Dr. Lynne Kenney’s techniques help grow compassionate children with better thinking and self-regulation skills.

Improving Behaviour and Learning via Better Executive Function and Self-Regulation Skills

Higher functioning cognitive skills such as organization, planning, previewing, inhibition and self-regulation are essential for successful social, academic and interpersonal development. These are skills that some children are born with, but many are not. The great news! We can teach skill sets to children that will calm their bodies and their brains, enhance their thinking, improve their learning and help them to become healthier social beings.

Through the use of case studies and interactive demonstration, Dr. Lynne Kenney co-author of Bloom: 50 Things to Say, Think and Do With Anxious, Angry and Over-The-Top Kids will provide you with practical, effective and easily adaptable skill-building techniques and tools for children and adolescents with behaviour and mood management issues. Leave this workshop with strategies, activities and tools for your office, home and school to help children and adolescents achieve their full behavioural, academic and social potential.
