Event Trainers
Keylee Tesar, MS, LPC-S

In this training, we will explore the impact of fear on the brain and behavior. Experiencing fear can be traumatic. Prolonged or repeated exposure to fear can impact the way our brain works and how we interact with our environment. We might misread situations, impulsively react or become agitated by different situations or interactions after we experience fear and trauma because our brain is trying to protect us. It's essential to understand what parts of our behavior and actions are driven by fear and look at them through the correct lens if we hope to change the behavior. In this training, resource parents will learn what fear does to the brain, explore how the brain learns, and become aware of what can be done to help the brain relearn so behavior change occurs.

There is a one-hour lunch break from noon to 1:00pm. Lunch is not provided.
