  • Apply the framework of interpersonal neurobiology to child development and discipline strategies.
  • Illustrate how to be intentional about teaching specific caregiving experiences to shape how children’s brains are wired and therefore function.
  • Explain to kids about their own brain so they can have additional tools for self-regulation and make better decisions.
  • Demonstrate to parents how to establish a consistent, overarching, Whole-Brain approach to discipline.
  • Identify tools for kids to change their own struggles so they can be less reactive and more resilient.
  • Identify basic developmental processes involved in children’s understanding of race.
  • Define the implications of implicit bias on education.
  • Recognize foundational aspects of the science of implicit bias.
  • Practice and refine skills of engaging in race based dialogue.
  • Recognize the different mechanisms through which providers may be impacted by serving children and families especially those who have experienced trauma.
  • Practice conceptualizing the behaviors of a provider through the lens of secondary traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, burnout, and mental injury.
  • Recognize partnering with youth and families is an essential element of a trauma informed organization.
  • Name the differences between engagement and partnering and how their ‘provider privilege’ can be a barrier to authentic partnerships.
  • Identify and describe the four pillars of the Sanctuary model.
  • Identify opportunities for their organization to embrace the principles of Sanctuary.
