When holistic psychologist Dr. Nicole Beurkens attends to a brain-based challenge, she doesn’t look only at the ways she could change the brain. She looks at the many things that impact the brain and starts there. Nutrition, sleep, environment, input. There’s so much that contributes to the challenging behaviors we see — and we have more control over many of them than we think we do!
If you’re curious about how to create an environment that will help the developing brain work at its best, you’ll love this episode!
