Self-Reg Facilitators Program

Self-Reg Facilitators Program 2018-12-14T07:32:12+00:00

Certification in The Shanker Method® is the next level of learning available for those interested in becoming a certified Shanker Self-Reg® Learning Facilitator. Anyone who has completed the Foundations program or Early Childhood Development Program and is interested in taking his or her Self-Reg expertise to the next level may apply. The demand for Shanker Self-Reg® Specialists from 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 experts in Shanker Self-Reg® will be widely available. Through this program:

  • 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.
  • Be certified by Dr. Stuart Shanker as a trainer & facilitator for The Shanker Method®.
  • Be eligible to apply for presenter and facilitator positions available with TMC.
  • Be eligible to apply to be licensed in The Shanker Method®, which will provide you access to all of the TMC materials for your training and facilitating work.

Coming to TMC and moving through the Self-Reg Certification program has been energizing and inspirational, leading to many richer experiences. Professionally, it has allowed me to think and problem-solve differently within our community, families and staff. It has allowed me the opportunity to reflect deeply and understand stress and physiology.  Self-Reg has given me tools and allows me to be a curious clinician! Personally, I am moving through day to day stresses and more challenging life events better and more calmly. The Self-Reg community is inclusive and supportive with a deep commitment to learning and science! As I said often through the certification process, “I am still me, but not the same.”
