Shanker Self-Reg® Books

Dr. Shanker has written two books designed to be introductions to the science and Self-Reg for parents and teachers. Learn more about both titles and how to purchase copies at the links below.

In Self-Reg, Dr. Shanker helps us begin to recognize, not just when our child is becoming dysregulated, but what to do about it: the process that will enable us to experience that calmly focused state where learning and growth can occur.  Learning Self-Reg has an unexpected benefit for us parents. As we come to understand our own hidden stressors and how those impact our brains and bodies, we find science that answers many questions and invites us to have a new gentler lens on ourselves as parents.
