  1. Emotional Poverty in All Demographics: How to Reduce Anger, Anxiety, and Violence in the Classroom, June 21, 2019 at Oxford Conference Center

Every evening on the news, there are multiple stories about violence and anger erupting. Workplace and school violence are increasingly a reality. 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.  The workshop:

  • Provides understandings of origins of anger, anxiety, and avoidance
  • Gives a language to talk about brain regulation, integration, and emotional competence
  • Provides tools for educators to address and reduce anger, anxiety, and avoidance
  • Helps educators manage the “classroom dance” that occurs between the educator and the students
  • Provides the tools to motivate good behavior

Identifies the differences in male and female emotional processing

“It was one of the most riveting speeches I have ever heard you give, and it gave us a sense of reassurance we all desperately needed. People cannot wait to get your book on emotional poverty. The information you provide can and will save the lives of so many children.”

  • Mississippi Education Law Conference
    June 14, 2019 at University of Mississippi Law School

The first Mississippi Education Law Conference will provide an opportunity for educational  leaders across the P-20 spectrum and attorneys representing schools and postsecondary institutions to enhance their understanding of cutting edge education law and policy issues. We have assembled a diverse group of presenters, with experience as leaders in schools and postsecondary institutions, as practicing attorneys, and as leaders in government. We will have two engaging plenary sessions—one focused on speech and expression in schools and colleges and another on charters schools. We will also have breakout sessions that cover topics tailored to elementary and secondary schools and to postsecondary institutions, including community colleges. Professional development credit will be available to both administrators and attorneys.
