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.

Scientific research in a number of fields is telling us that the key to student success is not so much intelligence but abilities like concentration, delay of gratification and emotional intelligence: abilities which are dependent on self-regulation. Published in 2012, Calm, Alert and Learning continues to be one of the top-selling educational publications in Canada. It has helped thousands of Canadian educators develop new ways to understand and address the challenges their students face.

Where Dr. Shanker’s previous books Self-Reg, and Calm, Alert and Learning answered the what and why of self-regulation, this new handbook, co-authored by Dr. Susan Hopkins, addresses the how. How do I incorporate the science and theory of Self-Reg into classroom practices and a process of ongoing learning that will help not only my students, but myself as a teacher?  Self-Reg Schools: A Handbook for Educators provide clear, yet flexible answers on how to start and maintain your Self-Reg journey.
