Neuroscience and Trauma Responsive Education and Leadership | Moving Our Educational Systems and Organizations Toward States of Growth and Resiliency

The 2023 Butler University Educational Neuroscience symposium invites educators, parents, mental health professionals, higher education, pre-service teachers, and all who work with children and youth at this time. This day-long hybrid symposium will address nervous system development and how development is impacted by trauma and adversity which informs our discipline protocols, as we meet adults and students in their emotional and social nervous system states. We will be sharing how equitable and restorative communities develop with leadership that is focused on the physiological, emotional, social, and cognitive well-being of adults and students. Trauma Accommodating practices, experiences, and conditions will be explored and discussed as we address educators’ brain and body state, the trauma-responsive approaches with ELL students, equitable discipline protocols, and sustainable leadership in this vulnerable, yet hopeful time in education and within our communities.
