Guiding Cooperation for Medical Professionals

Gain specific tools & strategies to build a positive relationship with your patients.

Research & Neuroscience







Medical Professionals Program 

Guiding Cooperation for Medical Professionals takes relationship-based tools and concepts and streamlines them for medical professionals working with children and families in the healthcare context. Grounded in theories of co-regulation and a neuro-relational approach, this program offers clear, trauma-informed strategies for professionals.


Contemporary neuroscience offers medical professionals deep understanding of the brain & development, supporting an understanding of patient and family behavior.


Your  medical community will learn effective tools from experienced facilitators and researchers. Delivered in a hybrid format, they will practice tools in community, learn about best practices, and access lectures & supportive visuals. 


Guiding Cooperation offers medical professionals a shared framework and language for supporting patients through challenge, navigating tough dynamics and ultimately, supporting calm & cooperation.

Why Guiding Cooperation?

Our goal is all medical professionals have the research based skills & frameworks to support patients with positive interventions and all children can cooperate.

Our program is focused on therapy experiences and how to make small shifts that will have a big impact on patients and support cooperation in therapy and at home.

Program is designed:

  • Delivered either as a day-long (6 hours) masterclass or two 3-hour masterclasses, participants dive into the research and reflect on their own practice.  

  • Lectures, infographics & other resources by Dr. Chelsey and Dr. Robin are available in a virtual online course, which participants may access for three months. 

Caring for Patient Needs After Covid-19

Analyzing the data picture


The WHO has found that anxiety & depression have jumped 25% in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Patients and their families need more tailored, effective supports than ever before.


The relationship between medical professionals and their patients is the basis for healing. As stressors have significantly increased in recent years for both patients and their families, nurturing this relationship is more complex. We offer medical professionals tools to support cooperation grounded in contemporary neuroscience and social emotional well-being. 

Real Outcomes

I have seen really big changes in my students and classroom when I use the Guiding Cooperation approach. I have enjoyed the content and the constant reminder of the basics of what our students and staff and teachers are dealing with. Having a safe forum to focus on the emotional struggles has been great. Helping the relationships and emotional well-being changes the energy and learning in the room.

Doing Guiding Cooperation as a team so we all learn together and focus on using these same principles is really helpful.  I really like the emphasis on the positivity and describing behaviors and efforts in a positive way and altering our language can really make a big difference with our students.

We honor the tremendous work medical professionals do to create learning and community for the families they work with, augmenting these capacities with research based information and an always supportive community of reflection and growth.
