Theme 6: Employment Empowerment Within The Vocational Environment

Sofia – 20-24 July 2015

During this meeting we looked at Theme 6 of the project and Plymouth Mind, at the request of other partners, prepared a workshop to look at the early learning environment – how people learn in relation to the architecture of the brain and how toxic stress can derail healthy development.

The workshop was based on a set of 4 videos that Plymouth Mind uses in helping people to understand mental health and to take a closer look at the person, especially when in a Job Coaching role.

1. Experiences Build Brain Architecture

2. Serve & Return Interaction Shapes Brain Circuitry

3. Toxic Stress Derails Healthy Development

4. The Stand Up Kid
