The 2011 Conference in L.A. taking place Oct. 28 & 29 is the flagship event of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry (ISEPP formerly ICSPP), a research and education network focusing on the critical study of the mental health movement.
This year’s conference has a stellar lineup of presentations on a diverse array of mental health topics and concerns. For those who have attended past ICSPP conferences, expect an opportunity to catch up with old friends and colleagues, as well as a chance to welcome many new members who have become part of ISEPP.
Among this year’s volunteer conference organizers is new member Marcia Lee. Whle Marcia is new to ISEPP, she is well versed in the work of many of the professional members and conference presenters. She has already contributed to the latest ISEPP Bulletin and has offered to assist Sara Bostock, the new Bulletin Editor. You’ll probably get a chance to meet Marcia as she will be helping out with conference registration and will also be one the presenters.
As a certified NM Educational Trainer and Reading Specialist, Marcia’s passion and concern is promoting methods to help children with symptoms commonly labeled as ADHD/ADD without the use of medication.
Marcia is the founder of Solutions Without Drugs and created the Children’s Brain/Body Balancing program to help children feel and act balanced through simple movements without the use of medication.
Based on over 30 years experience in teaching, movement, and intensive review of brain research, Ms. Lee crafted the program for toddlers through teens. The program has received rave reviews for its ease and effectiveness from teachers, professionals, and parents.
Current neuroscientific research demonstrates that movement is one of the most effective means of stimulating and balancing the brain. The physiology of a child’s developing brain creates the opportunity for self-regulation through simple movements that balance both hemispheres of the brain without the use of medication, ameliorating childhood behaviors labeled “ADHD” (which are actually normal behaviors) in the classroom, at home, and on the go. Research also indicates that using movement before any learning activity improves learning and retention, creating an effective teaching strategy for the classroom.
Marcia Lee’s presentation focuses on: “Childhood ‘ADHD’ Behavior – The Neuroscience Behind Using Movement to Self-Regulate Instead of Medication” and takes place Friday, October 28, 2011 at 2:15 p.m. in the Marinas Room of the Doubletree at the Hilton Inn, Culver City.
