Experiential Workshop: Whole Brain Learning


July 16, 2022 10:00am - 12:30pm

Caregivers and Educators — join us to explore ways to support the mental health of the children in your lives.

Event Details

Improving the mental health and emotional well being of children is a high priority for educators, parents, and caregivers alike. The special temporary exhibition Mental Health: Mind Matters explores how mental illness touches all of our lives, and how supporting mental wellness is important for us all.

Presented with Austin ISD, this workshop will bring educators and caregivers together to connect with one another on how to shape the mental health of their children. Join us for this experiential workshop, where you'll both learn the latest neuroscience research and get a chance to practice brain aligned regulation strategies so that you, and your children, can feel better in the moment. Continue your practice at home or in the classroom with a make-and-take resource kit. This workshop provides a unique opportunity for parents, caregivers, and educators to work together to address how to best support their children and themselves.

Registration for this workshop is FREE of charge and is open to educators from all districts, parents, and anyone that considers themselves a caregiver to children. Space is limited, and we expect this workshop to fill to capacity. Please email Education@TheStoryofTexas.com as soon as possible if you need to cancel so that others might attend in your place.

Parking is complimentary in the Museum’s garage. CPE certificates to be provided, SBEC approved. Exhibition admission included. Refreshments will be provided.
