How Restorative Practices of Wellbeing can Improve Outcomes for System Involved Youth
Time & Location
Dec 05, 2022, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM PST
About the Event
Our team has spent the past 15 years working with 60 mentors and advisors in 25 disciplines of wellbeing from 23 cultures to develop the Restorative Practices neuro-developmental model, which unites neurophysiology, data science, and awareness practice into a framework that can significantly help system involved youth and families overcome the internal challenges they face. In this training we will talk about the origins and implications of the model, and what it means for the creation of wellbeing. The model has broad applications in improving wellness outcomes for foster/system involved youth with trauma histories, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and high Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) scores.
· Participants will be able to Identify at least 2 core components of the restorative practices neuro-developmental model in the research of Dr. Stephen Porges, Dr. Vincent Felitti, Dr. Darcia Narvaez.
· Participants will be able to explain the Polvyagal Theory as a living framework for evaluation of the present moment autonomic state of a system involved youth’s nervous system.
· Participants will be able to identify at least 2 strategies (restorative practices) that can support system involved youth based on their autonomic state.
