"Hi Jodie I think this is taught and covered in the knowledge of "child history" the effects of toxic stress and inconsistent guidance etc. If we are to define "a" theory we will need to do for each unit too"

"Hi Jodie, I agree that we need to promote links to biological responses, but do you think this is covered through the use of self-regulation and resilience in the unit - throughout? There are many models currently, resilience donut, phoenix cups (and others) being used in the industry, all linking with resilience and self-regulation, all with their own take on how the brain and behaviour effect children (people). Brain development is such a quickly evolving science at present and the importance of gut brain links and plasticity could also be explored. I feel that sticking with basic brain development, self-regulation and resilience concepts captures the essence, then further experience and knowledge as practitioners will cement philosophy and allow expansion. The basic actions of an educator are often the same despite the foundation theory, for example, using positive interactions, creating a sense of belonging through acceptance and being responsive. How much can we fit into an industry entry level student? How many theories/practices/approaches can we teach so that students develop their own philosophy? What are your thoughts? "

"There needs to be a greater emphasis and inclusion of information on understanding why children behave the way they do. Understanding of brain development and models such as the Triune brain model will lead to greater understanding of how to support children. The emphasis on a biological response instead of choice and blame, and the importance of connection and attachment are vital to meaningful and effective practices. "
