HAPPY STAFF AND STUDENTS
LESS STRESS AND BEHAVIORAL ISSUES
IMPROVED SCORES AND ATTENDANCE
We believe schools need peace.
As a result of having suffered one or more traumatic experiences (ACEs - Adverse Childhood Experience), two-thirds of Americans (according to the ACE Study) are prone to responding to perceived threats by fighting, flighting (aka fleeing), or freezing in an attempt to achieve safety – even when there’s no actual threat. This Fight-Flight-Freeze response, in both students and staff, frequently results in behavior ranging from disruptive to dangerous. This is what we are seeing in America’s schools. This is the problem.
Connection – the feeling of ease and flow that occurs within yourself and between people when we experience being seen, heard, and valued without judgment – is the antidote for trauma and the secret magic of the Bigbie Method. Connection is a teachable, replicable process that the Bigbie Method teaches to school communities - students and staff. We do this through our proven Trauma-Informed, Social Emotional Learning Curriculum - to interrupt the cycle of trauma and create peace in the classroom. Educators trained in our method have 84% fewer student disciplinary referrals than their colleagues not trained in our method.
Educators who go through The Bigbie Method feel more confident and connected.
