Connection Over Compliance: Dr. Lori Desautels


-Connections Over Compliance- Our nervous systems are social systems. The educational system consists of us being with other people all the time. COVID created a huge social loss. It is even more relevant in this time. 

-Attachment builds the brain. “We work for people we like; we respect people who respect us.”-  Rita Pearson

-Touchpoints where you resonated with each other, student and teacher. It was through relationship and discipline. Relationships are key to making forward progress.

- Trauma logic, relationship resistance. Patterned, repetitive experiences learning how to create, serve and return between two people. 

-Neuroplasticity - every experience that we encounter has the ability to structurally and functionally change us. Growth mindset and accessing the executive functioning.

-All behavior is a form of communication. All behaviors are indicators and signals from the nervous system. ‘I can learn a bit more.’

-Modeling, Co-teaching, and support for educators. Walking side by side with educators.

-Connections over compliance through revelations in education.

-Self-reflection: retreat and take some breaths to compassionately detach so you can be fully present.
