Join Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, international speaker and co-author with Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. of The New York Times bestsellers The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline, as she revolutionizes the way you treat behavioral, emotional and somatic challenges using brain-based strategies for children and adolescents.

This workshop will use an interpersonal neurobiology lens to focus on bilateral and vertical brain integration that will challenge your current ways of understanding and treating behavioral and emotional struggles. Using stories, case studies, videos and humor, Tina will provide creative strategies on how to integrate brain science into your practice and personal life. Dive into the neurobiological aspects of attachment and narrative. Learn the latest on neuroplasticity, plus experience the changing brain in a way that’s clear, interesting and practical.

Acquire new tools to help children and families with:

• Anxiety
• Attachment
• Behavioral avoidance
• Emotional dysregulation
• Executive function
• Oppositional/disruptive behaviors
• Trauma

You will walk away with a new framework for treating children, adolescents and families along with effective strategies to improve attention, emotional regulation and resilient flexibility!


• Identify the framework of integration that can lead to health and wholeness.
• Explain how to revolutionize your assessment and treatment of anxiety, affective disorders, executive function, and disruptive behavior disorders.
• Utilize specific clinical experiences to shape how your clients’ brains are wired and function.
• Apply the framework of interpersonal neurobiology with pediatric and adolescent clients.
• Implement brain-based, age-appropriate strategies to promote resiliency in children.
• Challenge existing approaches to understand and treat dysfunctional behaviors and emotional dysregulation.


The Whole-Brain Child – Integration Strategies

• Science of integration and well-being
• Bilateral integration: left/right brain
...Name it to tame it
...Connect & redirect
...Surfing emotional waves
...Build resilience for difficult transitions
• Vertical integration: upstairs/downstairs brain
...Strategies to regulate emotional reactivity
...Reduce fight, flight, freeze responses
...Teach clients about their brains
...Use it or lose it and neuroplasticity

Emotions and Behaviors – Regulation Strategies

• Rethink intake and assessment
• Nervous system arousal/investigate toxic stress and co-regulation
• Zones of arousal physiological, emotional, and behavioral correlates
• Role of curiosity/beyond diagnoses and limits of our lens
• Interdisciplinary, interpersonal neurobiology approaches to mental health
• Role of sensory processing and information processing
• “Bottom-up” approaches
• Impact of movement on the nervous system
• Dysfunctional emotional regulation/formulate a treatment approach
• Challenge typical diagnoses with arousal and relationship in mind
• Case studies

A Neurobiological Lens of Attachment

• How attachment wiring impacts the attentional system and narratives
• Mental models and neurological wiring
• Weave attachment into treatment and change models
• Narrative and the attempt to understand the present functioning
• Attachment experiences in the classroom
• Using relationship to regulate neurophysiological states

Specific Brain-Based Strategies

• Anxiety disorders
• Attachment
• Behavioral avoidance
• Emotional dysregulation
• Executive function
• Oppositional/disruptive behaviors
• Shifting attachment patterns
• Stress modulation
• Trauma
