Are you experiencing trouble concentrating? Are you struggling to regulate your emotions or experiencing sleep disturbances? These behaviors are normal reactions to high stress and trauma. Unfortunately, it’s easy for your brain to form pathways in response to anxiety, stress, and trauma. The more these pathways fire, the more likely they are to fire again and become “hardwired.” It’s important to rewire these pathways into feelings of calmness, resilience, and happiness.
Anxiety, stress, and trauma can damage your health and lead to long-term mental disorders such as depression. They also inhibit higher-order executive functions, while strongly activating the emotional centers. This makes it harder to remember, pay attention, think critically, plan, organize, and control emotions. Anxiety, stress, and trauma can affect family and home life, resulting in higher rates of substance abuse and domestic and health issues. Unfortunately, your anxiety, stress, and trauma are also contagious to students, and can impair their learning.
During this workshop, participants learn the science behind how stress affects them and actions that can be taken to effectively address it.
Learn what science recommends when undergoing anxiety, stress, and trauma, and experience multiple ways to create calm, resilience, and happiness pathways that work specifically for you!
Participants can claim a digital badge and certificate upon completing the workshop and a post-workshop survey.

“Powerful!” “Engaging!” “Innovative!” and “Life Changing!” are just a few ways audiences describe presentations by Dr. Janet Zadina. Dr. Zadina is an internationally renowned speaker, consultant, author, and former high school and community college teacher, known for her extraordinary ability to inform, educate, and empower audiences with brain research. Dr. Zadina has made such an impact on the academic community that the Society for Neuroscience honored her with the prestigious 2011 Science Educator Award. This recognition solidified her reputation as a significant contributor to public education and the field of educational neuroscience. Through her transformative, powerful, and entertaining workshops, Dr. Zadina is changing the way teachers, students, and even business professionals understand and use the brain.
Dr. Zadina’s determination to tear down brain myths and build up lives was born from her personal experiences working with dyslexic students. When she learned that a new “window” into the brain was possible with neuroimaging, she knew she had to go back to school and study neuroscience. She earned a Ph.D. in Education while conducting MRI research on neurodevelopmental language disorders at Tulane Medical School. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in cognitive neuroscience.
Dr. Zadina bridges the fields of education and neuroscience in her visionary work and the magic of her presentations. Her years of research, writing, and teaching enable her to educate others with science and strategies to transform education. As the founder and CEO of Brain Research and Instruction, she teaches and models best practices in educational neuroscience when presenting keynote speeches and workshops worldwide. She has been honored as a Distinguished Fellow in the Council of Learning Assistance and Developmental Education Associations, among other honors. She is the author of textbooks as well as professional development books, including Multiple Pathways to the Student Brain. She is a co-founder of the Butterfly Project, a pro-bono initiative designed to help educators who have experienced natural disasters.
