Our children are facing daunting challenges today—from family-related stress, obesity, technology, depression, and bullying to competition for high grades and social pressure. How do kids cope with all this? How do teachers help themselves and help students that can’t cope? How, in this environment, do school leaders build schools that are kinder, more intelligent, and compassionate, schools where creativity, resilience, and clarity of mind reside? In this workshop, you will learn startling statistics about current trends among students as well as practices like brain deactivation and mindfulness that offer answers for many of our difficulties in the school building.
