What is Self-Reg and Why Does it Matter? An Introduction to Self-Reg

Scientists now understand that the better people can self-regulate, the better they can develop and use emotional, cognitive and social skills and rise to the challenges of living and learning. But what exactly is self-regulation? How does it develop? Why do some children, youth and adults struggle with it? What can we as teachers, professionals, parents and caregivers do to support and enhance self-regulation in ourselves and others? The answer is largely a story about stress, how stress affects us and what we can do to help children (and ourselves) understand, recognize and manage various kinds of stressors.

Drs. Stuart Shanker and Susan Hopkins will address all of these questions through the lens of Self-Reg, Dr. Shanker’s method for enhancing self-regulation by understanding and dealing with stress. Topics will include:

• the all-important difference self-regulation and self-control

• the brain/body science of stress

• the impact of an excessive stress load on energy and tension, and, and in turn, behaviour, mood and learning

• the 5 domains of self-regulation: biological, emotion, cognitive, social and prosocial

• the difference between stress behaviour and misbehaviour

• individual differences in stress reactivity

• hidden stressors

• unpacking the five steps of the Shanker Method®
