Research clearly highlights that supporting both staff and children and young people (CYP) to understand how the brain triggers our emotions and how it affects learning, creates deeper understanding of our emotions and behaviours. This is turn supports CYP’s ability to manage stress, regulate emotions, and understand responses to situations more clearly. Knowing and understanding about how the brain works can empower people to choose to transform their lives and move towards greater health and wellbeing.
