For those looking to dive deeper in their Shanker Self-Reg® learning and be equipped with the tools to bring Self-Reg to those in their community and care, the Self-Reg Facilitator’s Program is a fantastic next step. Anyone who has completed the Self-Reg FoundationsEarly Childhood Development and/or Leadership Certificate Program and is interested in taking their Self-Reg expertise to the next level may apply. The demand for Shanker Self-Reg® learning informed by The MEHRIT Centre is growing.

To meet the demand and our mission of grounding living and learning in self-regulation we are offering this program so that champions in Shanker Self-Reg® knowledge translation* will be widely available.

About the Program

Learn how to share the science of Self-Reg with<br />
your colleagues and those you support<br />
 - with Stuart Shanker<br />
& Susan Hopkins

But, is it for me? The Facilitator’s program combines a collection of short videos from Dr. Stuart Shanker, a collaborative inquiry model, and case studies. Using a facilitated cohort model similar to that in the Self-Reg Foundations program, the Facilitator’s Program has 6 courses (1 for each Self-Reg practice) with no tests, quizzes or exams. This offering is for educational purposes where we interact and learn alongside fellow learners.

Through this program you will:

  • Further ground your understandings of the Shanker Self-Reg® science and research foundations of The Shanker Method®.
  • Develop expertise in the Self-Reg Framework and application of the Shanker Method®.
  • Apply the Shanker Method® to case studies across a range of contexts.
  • Research, plan, develop, deliver*, assess and evaluate Self-Reg workshops.
  • Earn a Self-Reg Learning Facilitator Certificate.
  • Be eligible to apply for presenter and facilitator positions available with TMC – *Canada only
