The MEHRIT Centre’s flagship course is an excellent learning resource to help educators and those who work with children to create an understanding of how stress affects students’ behaviour and moods, the difference between misbehaviour and stress behaviour, and the importance of relationship in self-regulation.

·       how the brain/body stress system works 

·       how stress affects children’s behaviour and moods
