The Art and Science of Connecting Mind, Body, and Emotion for Student Success Conference

January 12 – 15, 2018

CE Credits Available

$495 Tuition Plus 3 nights all-inclusive accommodations.

It’s time for us to reimagine how schools can prepare students for success in college, career, and community, as well as equip them with evidence-based tools for cultivating new habits for health and well-being over a lifetime.

The research is compelling—students’ academic achievement is highly dependent on cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being. In this gathering for educators, administrators, parents, and education policy makers, we will explore the emerging science and the practices that can ensure we’re adequately addressing all of these aspects for our students.

In keynote talks, we will examine emotional intelligence and how it is linked to academic achievement, delve into the neuroscience of learning and executive functions, unpack the impact of adversity and trauma on learning, and explore the neurobiology of adolescents.

Through lecture, role-playing, and demonstrations, participants will:

  • Identify the neuroscience behind stress and physical, mental, and emotional health and wellbeing
  • Formulate steps to cultivate optimal learning environments for student and educator learning, health, and well-being
  • Define strategies and practices in teaching and leading that promote greater mental and physical health of teachers and students
  • Demonstrate how to connect mind, body, and emotions in every day instruction and within the school culture

The conference will run Friday evening, Jan. 12 to Monday noon, Jan. 15, 2018. We will include:

  • Featured speakers with mind, body, emotion expertise
  • Facilitated panel discussions with featured speakers
  • Breakout choices.

This course has been approved for 16 CE hours for the conference for qualified participants. Learn how and where to apply.
