Self-Regulation: Looking at Children with Kind Eyes
London, ON, Canada
Facilitated By: Nancy Liabotis RECE, RC and Carolyn Little RECE, RC
“Self- Reg is an approach to understanding people, building relationships, and helping people and communities be their best selves in various circumstances. And by calling Self- Reg a platform, rather than a program or intervention, we mean that it is the foundation underlying everything we do – communicating, working with people, remediation, discipline, supporting mental health, addressing special needs and building community.” (Shanker, 2018).
Self-regulation refers to how well we manage stress, how much energy we expend, and how well we recover. It is about understanding, not managing behaviour and how we can improve the conditions that result in challenging behaviours.
In this three-part series, participants will learn about the essentials of self-regulation and the Shanker Method of Self-Reg, through reflection, interaction and small group discussion.
In session one, we will explore self-regulation and what it is. We will look at the brain, stress and how self-regulation is about how we manage and recover from stress.
In session two, we will illuminate the five domains of self-regulation – biological, emotion, cognitive, social and prosocial – and note sources of stress that can occur in each domain.
And finally, in session three, we will delve into the Shanker Method of Self-Reg and how to practice all five steps to support children’s (and our own) self-regulation and get back to calm.
The three sessions will take place October 29, November 5, November 12
