Childhood development is impacted by many factors. This session explores how positive and negative experiences work to create basic human brain wiring and one’s view of the world. Understanding the brain science behind how trauma impacts the brain’s “wiring” or “architecture” allows for an entirely new way of interacting with others. The “architecture” of our minds defines one’s existence and life. Truth be told, we need to understand ourselves in order to begin understanding others.

This is a part of the 0-5 Flathead Reservation-Lake County Coalition, an exciting slate of trainings will be presented in the spring of 2023. Facilitating these sessions will be Teresa Nygaard, Executive Director of St. Luke’s Foundation. In her career, Nygaard has been an advocate for children, helping establish and lead a premier family support agency in Missoula. With her work, Nygaard has been on the frontline, and understands the dynamics those supporting children face every day. Her trainings are relevant, realistic, powerful, and focused on participants building personal skills and career success.

All trainings are free and there is the option of credits from the Office of Public Instruction and Salish Kootenai College. Sessions will be in 3-hour blocks. All of the training will have an interactive focus to promote engagement and improved learning outcomes. Share this with others who might be interested. The sessions have limited seating.
