The Developing Brain: Cultivating Resiliency in Children
Due to recent advances in technology, we can see what’s happening in a child’s brain in response to his or her environment, and now know that parental interactions play a large role in childhood cognitive development. Learn how psychologists are using this information to develop effective parenting strategies that cultivates the portion of the brain that is responsible for functions such as self-regulation, executive functioning, empathy, working memory, and life-long learning abilities. Through communication and connection strategies, we can carve the neural pathways to cultivate resilient, competent children.

Nellie Springston, M.Ed.
Founder @Calma: Calm & Loving Minds Achieve
Nellie Springston, a proud Indiana University undergraduate alum, finished first in her class with a M.Ed. School Counseling & Psychology from the University of Louisville, then spent years working in Psychology research learning about trauma, stress and the brain in military soldiers suffering from PTSD. Her passion was always to work with children, so she made her way back to a school setting as a behavior interventionist where she trained school staff to use preventative approaches with students to minimize negative behaviors. Nellie used mindfulness techniques with her most troubled students, and saw incredible results. She founded Calma: Calm & Loving Minds Achieve to provide parents and educators the tools they need to practice mindfulness in home and school settings.
