Sometimes a resource comes along that distills complex concepts so they are instantly understandable in both theory and practical applications. The three minute clip below is one.
The children in the video do an excellent job explaining the brain’s structure, function, and response to fear. They detail what fear reactions can look like in behavior, how fear affects processing, and why it is so important that we understand how behavior is, in essence, communication.
It is a brief yet fantastic resource. I hope you watch. I hope you comment. I hope you share.
Children often make great teachers. These kids certainly do! Well done, everyone!
