“The well-being of children is inseparable from the well-being of the critical adults in their lives.”
-Dr. Stuart Shanker

With that important truth in mind, this workshop will help Moms understand and learn how to support their own well-being using the tools of Self-Reg. Self-Reg is a powerful method for understanding stress and managing tension and energy, factors that affect our well-being and functioning as women and mothers.

This two-hour workshop, led by TMC Executive Director, Dr. Susan Hopkins will offer moms and other caregivers a welcoming and supportive environment for reflecting on and addressing their own well-being using a Self-Reg based approach that is hopeful, proactive and very feasible.

  • Some of the stressors that are unique to motherhood
  • Hidden stressors that may be affecting you without you even realizing it
  • The Shanker Method®, a five step method for understanding stress and managing tension and energy across five domains of self-regulation
  • How addressing your well-being can have a positive impact on your whole family
  • The nature and impacts of both positive and negative stress
  • Finding ways to restore energy and reduce tension
  • Self-Reg strategies that can enhance your well-being and help you deal with the inevitable stresses of parenting
