060 – The Conscious Discipline Brain State Model.

The Conscious Discipline Brain State Model. Conscious Discipline.

A Neurodevelopmental Model that Focuses on Internal States First and Behavior Second
The Conscious Discipline Brain State Model becomes a framework for us to understand the internal brain-body states that are most likely to produce certain behaviors in children and in ourselves. With this awareness, we learn to consciously manage our own thoughts and emotions so we can help children learn to do the same. The goal of this model is not to turn into neuroscientists, but to provide a simplified brain model as a means for increasing our self-awareness so we can respond consciously to the needs of the moment.

Our multidisciplinary approach surpasses behavioral approaches that teach specific behaviors, and offers a neuro-developmental model of the brain based on and adapted from the work of Bruce Perry, Daniel Siegel, Allan Schore, Louis Cozolino, Joseph LeDoux, Paul MacLean, and Alexander Luria.
