Creating Positive Emotions for Improved Learning, Motivation and Resilience

December 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Event Navigation

    COVID-19 has profoundly altered our lives and the lives of our students and children. An increasing number of children and adults have experienced anxiety, depression, mental health issues, and a diminished sense of hope and resilience that have ultimately impacted the ability to remain motivated and to learn.  Find out how creating positive emotions can impact learning and well being in this important live and recorded keynote webinar by Dr. Robert Brooks. All who register can view live and/or watch the recording which will be available for one month. 2 Continuing Ed. Hrs. for All and CMHs for SLPs. Education at all levels has been especially hard hit by the ramifications of COVID-19, and even more so for students who struggle with learning problems. What guiding principles can we use to navigate through these unprecedented times and nurture motivation, learning, and resilience in our children/students?  Positive emotions have been shown to have a strong impact on brain functioning, problem-solving, engagement, and emotional and physical well-being. In this webinar Dr. Brooks will examine the importance of creating positive emotions in our interactions with children and students. He will describe a strength-based framework, together with realistic strategies for nurturing intrinsic motivation, learning, responsibility, compassion, and resilience in children of all ages. The strategies he will share are based upon his work as a clinical psychologist with countless children and adolescents, and their parents and teachers, as well as upon his experience as principal of a school in a locked door unit of a child and adolescent program in a psychiatric hospital.  As educators and parents, we’ve all had to quickly pivot to learn brand new ways of reaching and teaching our children, while, in turn, helping them to also take risks and grasp onto completely new modes of learning and communication. The important, evidence based, practical strategies presented in this webinar can be used immediately by educators and parents to help their students and children. Most importantly, Dr. Brooks will also discuss what we can do for ourselves to be more resilient so that we are more effective in doing the same for our children/students.    Concrete case material will highlight several crucial strategies:  – identifying and reinforcing the “islands of competence” of children and students – better fortifying a sense of “personal control” for children and students – preparing children and students to manage obstacles and setbacks – providing opportunities for engagement in “contributory” or “charitable” activities Due to our current professional, educational and home life environments, this much needed webinar topic has been highly requested. Take advantage of this opportunity to register to attend live or to watch the recording. Those attending live will have the added benefit of being able to ask Dr. Brooks their questions. We hope to see many of you at this potentially life-changing event.  For more information, contact info@readingwithtlc.com
