When facing challenges, unpleasant tasks, and the resolution of issues such as homework, and screen-time limits, teens often act out or shut down, responding with negativity instead of receptivity. One constructive approach is for parents to guide their children to a “yes brain” mindset which will lead to desirable characteristics such as emotional regulation, resilience, personal insight, curiosity, independence, and empathy. Based on her new book (co-authored with Dan Siegel), Bryson will discuss ways to encourage positive thinking. Using her trademark warmth and humor, Bryson will discuss specific strategies for creating “yes brain” opportunities that allow our students to succeed — both now and as they grow into adulthood.


Dr. Tina Payne Bryson is the co-author (with Dan Siegel) of two New York Times bestsellers — THE WHOLE-BRAIN CHILD and NO-DRAMA DISCIPLINE — each of which has been translated into over twenty languages. She is a psychotherapist who keynotes conferences for parents, educators, and clinicians all over the world.
Tina eWhole brain childmphasizes that before she’s a parenting educator, or a researcher, she’s a mom. As I’ve studied attachment and child -rearing theory and the science of how brains work, I’ve been able to apply that knowledge and let it help me parent more the way I want: lovingly, intentionally, and effectively.”

Tina’s professional life now focuses on taking research and theory from various fields of science, and offering it in a way that’s clear, realistic, humorous, and immediately helpful. As she puts it, “For parents, clinicians, and teachers, learning about how kids’ (and their own) brains work is surprisingly practical, informing how they approach discipline, how they help kids deal with everyday struggles, and ultimately how they connect with the children they care about.”
