Fifth Annual Summer Conference
Emotional Poverty in All Demographics: How to Reduce Anger, Anxiety, and Violence in the Classroom
June 4, 2019 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Rubén G. Perez has been in education since 1988. Throughout his career, he has worked with students in grades K–12. His background includes general education, English language learners, curriculum development, dropout prevention, academic outreach in Section 8 housing, behavioral interventions, and organizing summits on race relations.
Using a brain-based approach, this session looks at the underlying causes of anger, anxiety, and violence; how they develop; and the tools that can be used to change those responses. Emotions are processed 200 to 5,000 times faster than thought. To change behavior, the motivation for the behavior must be changed. This session will provide understandings on how that can be used with family, relationships, institutions, and oneself.
During this Conference, Teachers will learn:
- origin of anger, anxiety, and avoidance
- to talk about brain regulation, integration, and emotional competence
- new tools for educators to address and reduce anger, anxiety, and avoidance
- to manage the "classroom dance" that occurs between the educator and the students
- tools to motivate good behavior
- to identify the differences in male and female emotional processing
The conference may be eligible for Title I Funding: Ask your local Title I expert.
