Self-Reg Schools: Four Journeys ~ London, ON

Self-Reg Schools: Four Journeys ~ London, ON 2020-01-21T08:47:58+00:00

Sparked by the publication of Dr. Stuart Shanker’s Calm Alert and Learning (2010) and Self-Reg, (2016), educators around the world have embraced science and theory of Self-Reg. Now, with the publication of Self-Reg Schools: A Handbook for Educators, by Dr. Stuart Shanker and Dr. Susan Hopkins (Pearson, 2019), the focus has turned to the “how” of Self-Reg. The challenge is that Self-Reg is not a packaged program, but a process, a way of seeing, understanding and responding that encompasses all relationships and practices in a school and its community.

Please see below for a description of the content that will be discussed each day:

Thursday January 23rd 2020: 1:00pm-4:00pm

This half-day workshop, rooted in the ideas and concepts of the new handbook, will show educators how to embed Self-Reg in teaching and learning environments, with a special focus on the diversity of student needs.

  • All means all: how Self-Reg can support and enhance inclusive education
  • How Self-Reg’s focus on stress and self-regulation offer new ways to understand and address students’ unique challenges and needs
  • Blue brain, red brain and brown brain: how excess stress affects our brain systems
  • Making the shift from trying to “manage” student behaviour to seeking to understand student’s behaviour and read the signs of excess stress
  • Looking at students with autism, anxiety and ADHD through the Self-Reg lens

Friday January 24th 2020: 8:30am – 3:30pm
