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.
- 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.”
