K-12 Institute: Towards Thriving Students

May 17, 2018

Recent advances in developmental neuroscience are dramatically altering attitudes towards the possibility of maximizing the educational  potential of every child. We now understand that the better children can self-regulate, the better they can rise to the challenge of mastering  ever more complex skills and concepts. But what exactly is  self-regulation, how does it develop, why do some children and teens  struggle with it more than others, and what can we do to enhance its development? Shanker Self-Reg®, a powerful method for understanding  stress and managing tension and energy, this Learn Self-Reg Institute will include explorations and practical applications of:
  • The impact of an excessive stress load on energy, mood, behaviour and learning
  • The “Triune” brain: Limbic versus “learning” states and the limbic “brake”
  • The five domains of Self-Reg: biological, emotion, cognitive, social and prosocial
  • The difference between self-regulation and self-control
  • Individual differences in stress reactivity, including the difference between stress behaviour and misbehaviour
  • Self-Reg  as a process, not a program: Where and how it fits with mindfulness,  safe schools, cultural programming and wellbeing initiatives
  • What you can do to enhance other’s self-regulation (and your own)
  • Self-Reg at the whole class and whole school levels.

Your day: Each session is co-led by Dr. Stuart Shanker and members of the TMC team, including Executive Director Dr. Susan Hopkins. We will provide a fresh, locally-sourced lunch as well as snacks.

Location: Dalhousie University

Time: May 17, 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Face-to-Face Seminar: Stress Management vs. Breaking a Stress Cycle

May 18, 2018

Stress management is often discussed in terms of adaptive coping. We are taught that stress is a normal part of life and we must learn to cope with it. Yet Self-Reg tells us that stress management is not just a question of coping but also a question of managing energy flow and recovering the energy expended in dealing with stressors. Moreover, coping, which often involves exerting self-control, uses considerable amounts of energy. Therefore, if we can’t reduce stressors and break energy cycles we will be continually draining our energy through coping. This class explores how Self-Reg can help people understand and break a stress cycle, thereby broadening their available tools (beyond coping) for managing stress.

A Word from Dr. Shanker:

“I’m amazed to reflect on how far back my connection to Nova Scotia goes. When I started, John Hamm was still Premier. The organizations and institutions that I was working with at the time were inspiring, but the challenges they faced were daunting and have remained so to this day – if not considerably more so. Both my trips to Halifax last October and my trip to Moncton last May convinced me that school boards now need to commit to Self-Reg in the same way as is happening in other parts of the country. This Institute presents us with an opportunity to start this process: to introduce educators and administrators to the power of Self-Reg, for themselves as much as for their students.I’m amazed to reflect on how far back my connection to Nova Scotia goes.
