Parents/caregivers will learn ways to recognize the effects of trauma, anxiety and dysregulation of the nervous system, and understand how this impacts learning and behavior. Participants will learn practical strategies to use at home, such as using a collaborative approach, incorporating mindfulness, teaching self-regulation skills, and how to increase intrinsic motivation.

How do I motivate my child to do his homework?

Why doesn’t she seem to care about doing her best during basketball practice?

I am constantly reminding him to practice his violin – how do I motivate him to practice on his own?

Motivation is a fascinating topic for employers, for teachers and also for parents. During this workshop, you will learn the three components that must be present in order to help your child develop intrinsic motivation.

We will discuss ways to use these components at home to encourage your child to be more engaged, interested and motivated to act, simply because it feels rewarding to them when they do so.
