VIOLENCE... has become more prevalent in our schools across the country.
Exposure to weapons
Physical violence, sexual violence, harassment
Cyber bullying, threats
Sale and use of illegal substances
Unhealthy and dangerous school climate
Fights, suicides, mental health diagnoses, and substance abuse are on the rise. Our children and youth are exposed to violence at a high level resulting in a lack of physical and emotional safety.
It is vital we see beyond addressing the victim and bully alone and move towards effective, sustainable, and trans-formative change that involves everyone. Administrators, school staff, students, and parents all unite to create a positive school climate where everyone feels safe.
Children are more than mental machines. Neuroscience, and Psychology state that we think through the body. Children need to learn to learn how to regulate their viceral state and exercise their neural systems to better support the social engagement system which in turn will allow them to learn and interact from a state of safety.
By understanding the systems of the human body, we can shift into an optimal state for learning and well-being. Yoga and an understanding of the Polyvagal Theory provide us with the tools needed to foster a healthy school climate and learning environment where every member of the school community is seen with value.
