1. Understanding Your Child’s Behavior - When it’s Their Nervous System Crying out for Connection and Regulation Karin Jakubowski, Ed.D. 14:00

In this podcast episode I sit down with Dr. Lori Desautels and I love what she said, “Behavior management is about adult behavior. It’s not about kids. Our brains and bodies hold the state of our nervous systems, and it takes a steady adult to settle a child or adolescent.”

I was hanging on her every word that she spoke at Delaware’s Trauma Awareness Conference last month. She was the keynote speaker and I attended her breakout session. I’m planning to read her books and have been following her on YouTube and tiktok.

I just love what she said in one of her sessions listen to this, “When we share a safe emotionally available sanctuary of space and a trusting presence, students can borrow from our calm in moments of dysregulation.” – Dr. Lori Desautels

“Coregulation is often non-verbal. Coregulation is our biological priority. Coregulation is at the heart of discipline protocols.”  – Dr. Lori Desautels

“The adult nervous system drives trauma work.” – Dr. Lori Desautels”

“Trauma gets stored in the body but can show up in our relationships,” says Dr. Wong.

I told you she is filled with GOLD NUGGETS! Thank you Dr. Desautels!
