We all have a nervous system that responds to safety and danger — this is something based in our biology that we all have in common
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
53:12
These common reactions are the natural function of our nervous system
Janice Banta

It’s especially hard when difficult family events (we have an elderly family member in the hospital) our coping is even more difficult given the COVID emergency

Teaching students and children about their nervous system can be very empowering. They see the universality of these responses. They realize they are not alone in experiencing these things.

CRM is an acronym for the Community Resiliency Model … the set of 6 wellness skills that help us get back in our resilient zone or stay in our resilient zone

How young is too young for children to be made aware of their nervous system and feeling and being “off balance” or stuck.
Lindy Settevendemie
01:06:56
Kristen - great question! I’ll add it to the list for the Q & A
Lindy Settevendemie
01:09:59
Hi Cyndi - we are not currently selling the books. Perhaps you could print them out?
Lindy Settevendemie
01:12:42
Cyndi - these slides are from Elaine’s CRM presentation. They are not currently in the SEE Learning books but they easily could be.
Lindy Settevendemie
01:13:06
Everyone will receive access to the slides after the webinar.

Elaine calls this “conversational resourcing."
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
01:17:03
A resource is something that makes you feel better, uplifts you, helps you get by. It can be internal, external or imagined. Resourcing can help us get back into our resilient zone, stay in it, or get deeper in it.
Sue Mann
01:17:44
Could you offer any thoughts on the similarities or differences on the SEE Learning Curriculum and Yale's RULER curriculum?
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
01:17:53
“Resourcing” is bringing to mind a resource and then noticing what sensations arise on the inside
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
01:19:05
Grounding is noticing the physical contact of your body with an object or surface.
Lindy Settevendemie
01:19:40
Thank you, Michael. Wonderful example!
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
01:21:15
Hi Sue, I’m not sure any of us are that familiar with the RULER program. SEE Learning includes these resilience skills, which are body and sensory-based. It also includes a systems thinking focus. These two aspects differentiate it from most SEL programs, although we have heard very good things about the RULER program too. SEE Learning is also completely free.
Michael Gaudet
01:21:19
sorry “holding on to the steering wheel”
Janice Banta
01:22:08
I did a workshop with the RULER folks from Yale. I think the two approaches are very complementary.
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
01:22:26
Thanks, Janice. That’s good to know.
Mikkel Bjelke Kristiansen
01:22:57
All the links will also be available in the email that you will receive after the webinar.
Sue Mann
01:22:57
Thanks Brendon - our school district has adopted RULER so curious to hear about the differences
Jennifer Knox
01:23:30
Love you too!
Mikkel Bjelke Kristiansen
01:23:45
If you have more questions, please ask them here or in the Q&A.
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
01:25:30
Sue, SEE Learning is also designed to be complementary, not competitive, to other programs. You are welcome to implement it or aspects of it alongside other SEL programs. For example, it could be very helpful to bring in these resilience skills to help kids deal with dysregulation of the body
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
01:26:59
Serenella, we have a free orientation course for educators, parents or others: it is at seelearning.emory.edu
Sue Mann
01:29:07
Brendon - yes, I'm not aware that RULER talks at all about nervous system from what I've seen.
Brendan Ozawa-desilva
01:29:57
Learning about the nervous system can be wonderfully complementary to learning about emotions — because when we get activated and bumped out of our resilient zone, our emotions can really become augmented and difficult to manage
