This video is part of our series on rapid resets, tools for de-escalation that can help teachers and students build resilience, calm their nervous systems, and bring their thinking brains back online. Special thanks to Resources for Resilience, an organization in Asheville, North Carolina, that trains educators in how to use these tools for themselves and with their students.
