Unlock your client’s innate capacity for resilience, compassion, and creativity
From Daniel J. Siegel, MD, and Tina Payne Bryson, PhD, the bestselling authors of The Whole-Brain Child, No-Drama Discipline, and The Power of Showing Up, comes the latest resource for parents, clinicians, and educators to nurture the positive potential in children. Expanding upon their acclaimed book The Yes Brain, this workbook companion continues to build on the skills needed to cultivate courage and emotion regulation in kids. The Yes Brain Workbook teaches caregivers how to cultivate a mindset in their children (and themselves!) that will encourage them to approach life with a “yes” state of mind. With an interactive format that includes worksheets, activities, self-reflections, and fun illustrations, parents will learn how to:
• Put into practice the fundamentals of a Yes Brain - balance, resilience, insight, and empathy - and how to strengthen them in real-world scenarios
• Recognize when kids need a gentle push out of a comfort zone vs. needing the “cushion” of safety and familiarity
• Develop strategies to reduce negative behavioral and emotional states (aggression and withdrawal) and expand their child’s capacity for positivity
The Yes Brain Approach Teaches:
• Flexibility and adaptability
• Sound decision making and planning
• Regulation of emotions and body
• Personal insight
