The Garrison Institute Forum: Education – Mark Greenberg and Dan Siegel

The Garrison Institute Forum: Education
Bridging Science, Contemplation and Action

Attachment and Awareness in Times of Stress: Supporting Parents and Educators
Dan Siegel and Mark Greenberg In Conversation
June 10th, 5-6pm EDT

On Wednesday, June 10th at 5:00 PM EDT, we continue The Garrison Institute Forum series with two leaders in the field of education, Dan Siegel, M.D. and Mark Greenberg, Ph.D.. Beginning in infancy, we learn to regulate our emotions, thoughts, and behavior by the co-regulation of others. As we develop, we also learn new ways to self-regulate which can strengthen our ability to cope effectively and increase our resilience. Dr. Greenberg and Dr. Siegel will discuss these topics and take questions on how parents and educators can support children and youth, especially in these times of stress and isolation.
This live webinar will be conducted on Zoom at 5pm EDT on Wednesday, June 10th. The webinar link will be emailed to participants within twenty-four hours of your registration. Registration for this live webinar closes at 4pm EDT on June 10th. Please note that participation in the live webinar on Zoom is limited to the first 1,000 attendees. We will also be live-streaming this program on our Youtube.

Your support matters. Our vision for a more just, compassionate world has never felt more urgent. While we cannot share physical space together, we remain committed to a shared practice of social and spiritual care. We are thankful for the opportunity to create a virtual sanctuary during this time of physical distancing. If you feel called to support our work, we welcome your tax-deductible contribution toward our efforts.
