Welcome to San Francisco!

We can’t wait to see you at our conference this weekend: Educating Anxious Brains.

Various reports have found that many children and teens are experiencing significant stress, anxiety, and mental health issues.

More than 1 in 20 children ages 6-17 (and one in three teens) suffer from anxiety disorders, according to a June 2018 study in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. A new UC Berkeley study finds that college students have seen a sharp rise in anxiety over the past decade and an American College Health Association study reveals that sixty-two percent of college students report a significant level of anxiety. In addition, according to a 2016 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH), almost forty-five percent of all children in the US have experienced at least one Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE).

Discover how toxic stress, anxiety, and trauma negatively affect developing brains, student behavior, and academic success.

This conference will help you reduce anxiety and stress in your schools and practice; address teen depression and challenging classroom behaviors; foster coping, calming, mindful practices; create trauma-sensitive schools; and improve school success by promoting positive teacher-student relationships.

If you’ll be there, you might want a quick preview of our upcoming speakers.

You can meet many of them at this link. And, many more right here.

If you can’t join us in San Francisco, perhaps you’re free the weekend of May 1st in New York City. We’ll be exploring the Schooling of the Self
