Empowering Connection with Stacy Nation

· 17:09

In this episode of the Resilient Schools podcast, recorded live at the Bridging to Resilience Conference 2023, keynote speaker Stacy Nation discusses the importance of cultivating genuine connections in a digitally dominated world. 

Stacy, a licensed clinical social worker with a rich background including serving in the Wyoming Army National Guard, emphasizes the need to teach children and teenagers the value of in-person interactions over digital ones. 

She shares effective strategies for managing technology use, such as encouraging kids to put away their phones during social gatherings, and fostering deeper conversations beyond superficial digital communication. 

Stacy also touches on how educators can manage their own triggers and regulate their nervous system for better classroom management.
