TedxPhiladelphiaED Video 5: Stewart Pisecco on behavior matters

On June 25th, TEDxPhiladelphiaED opened its doors to an audience of just 330 educators and other selected applicants for a half-day “brain spa” designed to give deep support to their larger work in the world. The ideas and solutions presented were designed to be adopted by the audience members without regulatory, budget or otherwise political interference and delay.

The fifth video released by the TEDxPhiladelphiaED team is from Stewart Pisecco, a child psychologist and recognized expert in the education of students with behavioral disorders. Armed with statistical perspectives on mental health in American schools, and inspired by powerful personal experiences working in the field, Dr. Pisecco presents a new model for supporting positive behavior in and beyond the classroom.
