Processing Thinking - Resilience and Flexibility 

Students who exhibit behavior that is challenging to adults often struggle with cognitive flexibility and resilience.  When the brain lacks access to its ability to gain and send out certain information, it may result in  behavior that can look very rigid.  In turn a student who is struggling with adapting to adversity may be struggling with resilience.  In this training, participants will learn about the components of flexibility, resilience, and how their practice can influence a student's growth in these areas.   We will look at the effects of a system that struggles to naturally cope with adversity and how to teach methods to be flexible when our brain wants to be rigid.
