About this event

Registration is required on Eventbrite. This event is geared toward teachers and teaching artists!

Description of Session:

Join us for a dynamic, interactive session for adults, specifically geared toward teachers and teaching artists. In this workshop, participants will engage in a social emotional arts and theatre-based approach to explore stress and its effect on the body, identify their own stressors, experience different ways to become aware of their stressors, and practice tools and exercises for regulating the nervous system.

  • Utilizes theatre and social emotional arts and learning to give adults experiential learning and opportunities to practice regulating themselves and co-regulating others.
  • Promotes destigmatizing and understanding stress through theatrical, experiential, and social emotional learning
  • Engages participants in regulation activities and practice teaching these activities to co-regulate young people or adults. All regulatory practices are grounded in science.
  • Explores our individual brains and bodies and how they react to stress to become aware of when self-regulation is needed.

Session Content:

In this session, Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre facilitators will lead participants in exploring and identifying stressors through social emotional activities, personal exploration, and theatrical scenes. Participants will also be guided to explore the physical and mental cues they experience when they need to self-regulate. Facilitators will also lead participants in a variety of regulation practices that focus on cross-body stimulation, vagal nerve stimulation, and utilization of breath and physicality to regulate the nervous system. Additionally, the facilitators will coach participants on leading these regulation activities so they can co-regulate with young people and adults.
