Gordon Freeman Brown inspires others to spread the message of authentic relationship-based, child-centered active learning experiences as the basis of resilience and healing for both children and adults. An ACEs trainer and scholar of the prevention of developmental trauma and toxic stress, he believes we can create a powerful social and cultural pedagogy with the potential to create a more just and stable society in the future.
In this workshop, we will look at societal and home factors that impact the lives of children in positive ways, building resiliency and setting a foundation for success in life.
Learn how our schools and classrooms support children and social-emotional development; through positive self-talk, creating a caring environment, and building a sense of self-worth through classroom rituals.
