The Eyes Are Never Quiet: Listening Behind the Behaviors of Kids.

Virtual Event

Children are our nation’s greatest natural resource and their emotional, mental and physiological well-being are at stake. What can we do?

We begin with the awareness and research that adversity just doesn’t happen to a child — it attacks and hijacks a child’s brain, body and nervous system function reprogramming how they react and respond to all life.  When early development is toxic, severely disrupted or is met with significant adverse childhood experiences, children can become aggressive, detached, or shut down.

Lori Desautels, Ph.D., is a university supervisor and instructor for the Indianapolis Teaching Fellows and Teach for America programs. She is also an instructor at the undergraduate level at Marian University in Indianapolis. Before coming to Marian University, Lori taught emotionally challenged students in the upper elementary grades, worked as a school counselor, was a private practice counselor through the Indianapolis Counseling Center, and was a behavioral consultant for Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis on the adolescent psychiatric unit. Lori graduated from Butler University with a BS in Special Education, from Indiana University with an MS in counseling, and earned her Ph.D. from The American Institute of Holistic Theology with an emphasis in early adolescence/thought formation.
