Trauma Informed Starts with YouThis video summarizes the gist of what I think it takes for an organization to become trauma-informed. 
Trauma and the Incredible HulkHow I use the Incredible Hulk to explain the impact of Trauma
Understanding Trauma: Learning Brain vs Survival BrainThis video reframes a trauma perspective in terms of learning brain versus survival brain as a way to make it easier for teachers to talk about trauma with students. 
"Every Opportunity" DeconstructedEvery Opportunity is a wonderful video for schools to see the difference between a school in crisis based survival mode versus one that puts student into learning brain through the foundation of relationships and teaching social emotional and neurodevelopmental tasks. I show the video and break down what I think about it.  
The Nurturance of Being KnownIn this video, I use a developmental perspective to argue that being known by another person is just a vitally important to life as listening to a baby's cries to figure out what they need. 
Secure AttachmentThis is a little tutorial on secure attachment that i made with my dear from Thomas Moon. We're going to do a series of training videos to share what I've learned as much as I can. 
Avoidant AttachmentPart 2 or 5. Video about Avoidant Attachment. Please don't take this too seriously. It's a gross generalization. 
Ambivalent AttachmentAnother video describing some rough ideas about how ambivalent attachment and how it impacts students. 
Attachment States of MindAdult attachment is actually based on how mindfully present one can be when interacting with another person! 
Using Attachment for HealingPart 5 of 5: I finally conclude the attachment series by talking about the value of mindful presence and mentalization as the key to developing secure attachment. 
Cardozo Law School LectureA critical analysis of how trauma can impact behavior between a student and teacher, breaking down the Boston 24/7 Principal McAfee video. 
Motivating Others with CompassionThis is a consultation I did for a man who works with justice-involved youth. He is already a great motivator and is able to connect with youth because of his own history. He is effective at his job but uses thinking about consequences as the primary motivational tool to change behavior. Here, we explore how to use his true emotional experience and his sincere caring intention to further his skills.Thank you Kenneth Edwards, Center for Court Innovations and the Crown Heights Mediation Center.
