The Self-Reg Myths

The Self-Reg Myths

Hello Self-Reg community!

Our Third Annual Self-Reg Summer Symposium ran from July 4-7th, 2017. At SRSS, we explored 12 Self-Reg myths and the barriers to practicing Self-Reg that our community asked us to address this year.

To prepare for the Summer Symposium, Stuart Shanker and I decided to do a series of short videos, one per myth over the course of 12 days.

The blog mentioned in the first video from Dr. Brenda Smith-Chant, What is the Evidence the Self-Reg Works, can be found here. You can watch the videos at the links below or on our YouTube channel.

  • Myth 1: “Self-Reg is a current fad with no research backing”
  • Myth 2: “Self-Reg is going too soft on kids”
  • Myth 3“Compliance and emotional control are the goals of Self-Reg”
  • Myth 4“Kids are too young to understand Self-Reg”
  • Myth 5“I can teach Self-Reg with a One-Size-Fits-All approach”
  • Myth 6“Self-Reg is just the latest version of classroom management”
  • Myth 7“‘That’ kid needs to learn how to self-regulate. It’s about them, not me.”
  • Myth 8“Self-Reg is just another term for self-control”
  • Myth 9“Self-Reg is the theory, other programs out there teach you how to do it”
  • Myth 10“Self-Reg is about strategies for a quick fix to behaviour problems”
  • Myth 11: “Self-Reg takes too long to learn and implement”
  • Myth 12“Self-Reg is easy, I get it. I saw a presentation on it once.”
