We were so honoured to have Guy Stephens of The Alliance Against Seclusion and Restraint join us for the 9th Annual Self-Reg Summer Symposium at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario July 4-6 2023. Guy was one of our presenters and spoke about You are the Strategy to Reduce Punitive Discipline. Guy is a passionate advocate for children and we are proud to support his mission.
One of his team members, Teresa Olafson wrote this blog and we think it’s fabulous. Enjoy!

And yet, there exists the Self-Regulation Summer Symposium. I was able to attend the majority of the symposium and want to share my heartfelt gratitude for this opportunity.
