Doors of Trust

Learn how biopsychosocial factors impact trust-building and examine the role that vulnerabilities such as chronic stress and trauma play in cognitive processing, memory, and the student learning experience.    We will examine the reaction model and power model and then examine 8 behaviors that Master Educators engage to reduce barriers, foster trust and promote relationships of transparency and trust with vulnerable learners.  

In this webinar, we will explore biopsychosocial strategies that compassionate and responsively meet the psycho-emotional needs of students  and we will learn how to use the subtle art of language framing to diminish power struggles and reduce  barriers that can prevent vulnerable learners from attachment and from trusting people in positions of authority, influence, and privilege (such as teachers).
