“You can’t intellectualise anxiety” says Jane Evans – and in this heart-warming talk about how our brains develop she uses a trio of endearing animals – namely a meerkat, an elephant and a monkey - to help traumatised children understand how their brains work.

This talk is from TEDxBristol 2015 Great Expectations: looking towards a future we can dare to expect more from.

Jane is a Trauma Parenting and Behaviour Expert and Author who has spent the last 20 years helping children deal with difficult issues and get a better start to life. Jane has linked her experiences with the latest neuroscience and attachment research, which she has been studying for over 10 years, to develop this easy to understand approach to anxiety.

Watch this talk to find out how our Meerkat Brain, Elephant Brain and Monkey Brain interact when we are growing up, and most crucially how we can help children calm their inner meerkat, whatever troubles they have experienced.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
