Shanker Self-Reg® is a process for enhancing self-regulation by understanding and dealing with stress. In Self-Reg we consider both our responses to stress and our underlying state of energy and tension when we encounter a stress.

The original psychophysiological definition of self-regulation refers to how we respond to stress—whether in a manner that promotes or restricts growth. Mindful self-regulation, which enhances learning and emotional, social and physical well-being, involves learning to recognize and respond to stress in all its many facets: positive as well as negative, hidden as well as overt, minor as well as traumatic or toxic.

Shanker Self-Reg®

The practice of Shanker Self-Reg® helps people understand and respond to others (and themselves) by considering self-regulation across five interrelated domains—biological, emotion, cognitive, social, and prosocial—using The Shanker Method®:

  1. REFRAME the behavior.
  2. RECOGNIZE the stressors (across the five domains).
  3. REDUCE the stress.
  4. REFLECT: enhance stress awareness.
  5. RESTORE: develop personalized strategies to promote resilience and restoration.
