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.
