Summary

Neuroscience discoveries have revolutionized our understanding of how the brains of our children learn and grow. In particular, brain research reveals how the specific language used by adults who teach, mentor, counsel, and parent youth has a much more profound effect on their development than previously realized. Learn the four powerful “languages of the brain” that transform the lives of the children you serve. Participants learn a new way of talking to youth that builds resilience, promotes intrinsic motivation, enhances cognitive stimulation, and creates kaleidoscope thinkers.
