Why 'Brain First'?
What does the brain have to do with challenging behaviors? Everything, actually. Neuroscience research tells us that the brain and behaviors are always connected. That's why, when we parent from a brain first framework -- thinking brain first, and then behavior -- our child's challenging behaviors are reduced and we shift toward greater connection and less frustration in our parenting experience.
Maybe you're tired...
of feeling as though your home is a place of chaos, and nothing you do as a parent works to make your child less challenging. You're frustrated that you use very good parenting techniques with your child, the same approach your parents used with you, and your friends use with their children, yet instead of making things better it actually makes your child's behavior worse. You have a growing sense of hopelessness that things will ever get better. You feel like over the years of struggling to parent your child with challenging behaviors, you've completely lost your sense of self in the midst of it all.
You just need...
straight-forward, actionable information on how to help your challenging child and your family experience less tension and more joy. You need a roadmap that helps you understand your child's behaviors in a different way, so that from there, you can parent them more successfully. You just need help understanding why the things you've been doing aren't working, and what you can do instead.
Nine hours, time enough to transform:
... your understanding of your child.
... your understanding of yourself as a parent.
... the chaos in your home into a calmer environment.
... a sense of hopelessness or frustration into confidence and clarity.

Learn alongside other parents who have children with neurobehavioral differences and challenging behavioral symptoms. Make connections with other parents who "get it" and share your lived experience.
Walk away from this 9 hour training with concrete strategies on how to form a deeper connection with your challenging child and how to parent them in ways that align with their unique brain function.
The neurobehavioral roadmap you need, plus tools for parenting your child with challenging behavioral symptoms. You'll have all the information you need to continue growing your parenting skills for years to come.
There is more hope for us and our families than we are ever led to believe. This training acknowledges how difficult this parenting experience can be, while also believing that suffering does not have to be the final destination.
Here, you can find reprieve, rising above the chaos of the day-to-day and gaining clarity on not only what might be going on for your child, but also what is going on with YOU, and what you can do to impact both.
Eileen Devine is a therapist, neurobehavioral consultant, and mother to a child with a neurobehavioral disability that has challenging behavioral symptoms.
After attending the life-changing three-day FASCETS training on the neurobehavioral model many years ago, the way my husband and I viewed our daughter and her behaviors was forever changed. The information we were missing, and now had, strengthened our relationship with her in ways I could not have imagined and restored peace to our home.
This life-changing journey set me on a career path where I now walk alongside and support other parents who have children with challenging behavioral symptoms and who experience that sense of loss and isolation I once felt in my own parenting. My mission is to help those parents understand the neurobehavioral model of parenting and to implement it into their day-to-day life, so that over time, they too can experience increased connection with their child and renewed hope for their family's future.
What people say:
“As a result of working with Eileen, I feel better able to confront the grief that is stifling my relationship with my family.”
