Self-Regulation Is For All Of Us!

Facilitated by Laurie Young, Alberta Health Services

This full day training is of benefit to you professionally and personally and can be applied to yourself, your children/loved ones. Self-regulation lays a foundation for a child’s long-term physical, psychological, behavioral, and educational well-being (Shanker, 2012). If, like most of us, you can stand to improve self-regulation skill, this session is a good place to start in being able to understand the biology and function of emotions in general and specifically feelings and what you can do to enhance a child’s ability to self-regulate.

One of the most common mistakes is to confuse self-regulation with compliance. Self-regulation has nothing to do with being strong or weak, and to punish a child for a “lack of self-discipline” when their problem has to do with an over-stretched nervous system risks exacerbating the self-regulatory problems that the child is dealing with.
