Education on the Edge - Tina Payne Bryson

Tuesday, April 5, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

University Student Union, Northridge Center

The Center for Teaching and Learning at California State University, Northridge presents the Education on the Edge speaker series

Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.

Co-author of two New York Times bestsellers—The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline; Executive Director of the Center for Connection in Pasadena; and pediatric & adolescent psychotherapist

“The Whole-Brain Child in the Classroom”

In their New York Times bestseller THE WHOLE-BRAIN CHILD, Tina Bryson and Dan Siegel introduce parents and other caregivers to practical strategies based on cutting-edge brain science. A central principle of the book is that the strategies can help parents not only survive difficult moments with their kids, but actually use those very moments to help their children thrive. In this presentation, Dr. Bryson will take this central concept and apply it to teacher-student interactions. The best teaching strategies are the ones that not only help instructors maintain order and cover material effectively, but that also challenge kids to become all that they’re meant to be.
