Spotting w/ the nervous system,trauma, &neurodivergence in mind - Circus Events - CircusTalk
This 110 minute training will teach you a framework that you can immediately implement in your studio and current teaching practice to ensure that your spotting and physical adjustments are: · Trauma & neurodiversity informed · Consent-driven · Based in the neurobiology of safety · Guided by knowledge about the nervous system · Mindful of adaptive needs · Empowerment based You’ll learn theory that will support you in becoming a human-informed coach, and concrete skills and actions that you can immediately take to ensure that your approach to spotting is meeting the physical safety, felt safety, and other needs of your students. This training consists of a 110 minute video with powerpoint visuals and a document that summarizes the key points. WHY: Whether disclosed or not, we regularly teach students who are neurodiverse, have trauma histories, are navigating mental health challenges, have sensitivities to touch, or have other adaptive needs. Being human-informed means recognizing that all of our students (and, in fact, all humans) share fundamental neurobiological frameworks that influence how we experience safety and navigate connection with others as we move through the world. When we apply this neurobiological and nervous system understanding to a circus (or related movement) environment, we’re able to approach spotting in a way that is inherently trauma-informed, neurodiversity-informed, and consent driven. As we do this, we build positive studio culture, support our students’ brains towards learning and skill progression, and have a higher chance of meeting our students’ needs for both physical AND felt safety. WHERE: This is a pre-recorded webinar. You can watch from anywhere, anytime! No pants required! WHO: Circus professionals, movement professionals, coaches, or anyone who is interested! (Please note that this training is meant to be applied to your current spotting and teaching practice, and is not intended as a replacement for teacher training.) This training unfolds in three phases: 1. Part 1: Neurobiological Theory & The Role of Felt Safety in Spotting: This section of the training outlines foundational theory that explains how the nervous system, physical safety, felt safety, co-regulation, and our neurobiological drives relate to spotting and coaching. 2. Part 2: Concrete Action Steps: Part 2 of the training expands on the theory presented in Phase 1, and provides concrete action steps that coaches can implement immediately based on Part 1 of the training. These strategies guide coaches to engage with their students in a trauma-informed, neurodiversity-informed, consent-driven, and empowering way around this topic. 3. Part 3: During the final phase of the training I will answer your FAQs and will provide additional details about some of your most commonly asked questions, and how this theory and these steps relate to working with different populations. (If you want even more details, please email me, and I can send you a list of 19 learning objectives for the training!)
