Topic Discussed: Understanding the new neuroscience around how emotions and cognition are the same and how they inform social and emotional functioning
Enhanced by sophisticated imaging techniques, the recent growth of cognitive and affective neuroscience has culminated in a new and useful way of understanding the emotional life of the brain. Visionary research by, for example, Craig (2015), Damasio (2010), Johnston & Ohlsen (2015), and Panksepp & Biven (2012) suggests that emotions are much more useful than we ever knew and that they play a part in every thought, choice, memory, and decision that we make. This new neuroscience also provides the keys to helping ourselves, school personnel, and students identify, understand, and regulate emotions. Good emotional awareness and regulation is directly associated with positive health and successful academic and life outcomes. This workshop will provide a review of the latest affective neuroscience research, introduce the rationale and research behind effective emotions training, and provide specialized intervention strategies for School Psychologists. There is no doubt, that the latest findings in affective neuroscience will stimulate new and effective ways cause of teaching social and emotional skills in the public schools!
