What happens to your brain when there is an unexpected moment of tension, conflict, or controversy in your class? When your students experience harm because of something that was shared, your "in the moment" neurological and physiological responses can act as a tool rather than a hindrance. We will explore evidence-based practices and strategies rooted in neuroscience and embodied pedagogy that will help you ground yourself and make informed decisions before you take action.
