All of us, without exception, deal with difficult situations in our professional and personal lives. We can’t change that. But the latest neurobiological research is affirming that what we can alter is how we respond to those circumstances.  

When we automatically respond to challenges with fear, defensiveness, and/or reactivity, this is a “No Brain” response. Instead, we can learn to offer a “Yes Brain” response, where we’re receptive, approaching life with openness, creativity, and curiosity.

We invite professionals working in the human service, mental health, and education fields to join us May 6th at The Hotel at Kirkwood Center for our annual Resilience and Trauma Informed Care Symposium hosted by the Meraki Institute of Learning and Tanager Place. In this presentation based on her book The Yes Brain (co-authored with Dan Siegel), Dr. Tina Payne Bryson will discuss ways to cultivate a healthy, innovative, engaged approach to life. Using her trademark warmth and humor, she will discuss specific strategies for creating Yes Brain opportunities that allow us to thrive in our lives.
