School Workshops


• Australia
• Bali, Indonesia

At Calm Kids, we provide a variety of workshops for staff working in educational settings based on the latest research in Interpersonal Neurobiology. Understanding how our nervous system responses impact both educators and children in our classrooms is essential for creating both trauma-informed and trauma-aware schools. Our focus is on empowering educators to understand their own sense of wellbeing without adding to the already overloaded expectations of educators. We provide easy, accessible, and effective strategies to integrate wellbeing into our daily interactions. Once we develop a sense of our own nervous system state, we are more able to respond with compassion to both ourselves, our colleagues, and a child who is dysregulated.

Calm Teachers, Calm Kids:

A Nervous System Approach to Promote Wellbeing in our Classrooms

3 Hour Workshop

This engaging and comprehensive 3-hour professional learning workshop will help to build an essential culture of wellbeing in your school.

We begin by sharing effective practices to ensure your school staff are aware of the importance of self-care and self-compassion (we call it the 'oxygen mask approach). We share the latest scientific information about safety and connection and why these two concepts are essential to optimal learning.

Our workshops are designed to provide your staff with simple, practical skills that they can implement instantly in their interactions with all children, in particular with children who have experienced trauma. The mental health of our children is at a crisis point, and understanding trauma is essential in supporting our young people to engage fully with their learning and in life.

“We had Calm Kids do a presentation to our staff. Their level of knowledge was incredible. We have staff ranging from graduates, to those that have been teaching 40+ years, and they all commented that it was the best Professional Learning they had ever received. The presentation was engaging, relevant and absolutely crucial for educators at all levels of experience. This should be mandatory for all school staff. This training will stick in my mind and impact my relationship with students for many years to come. We cannot wait to have them return”
