Below you will find the presentation’s slides as well as a compilation of resources and recommended readings to dive deeper into the Self-Reg concepts presented. Feel free to explore our website for more Self-Reg content or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Dr. Shanker provides a succinct and clear answer to the question, “What is Self-Reg,” by explaining the relationships between stress and self-regulation in the five domains where we experience stress.
In Self-Reg, Dr. Shanker helps us begin to recognize, not just when children are becoming dysregulated, but what to do about it: the process that will enable us to experience that calmly focused state where learning and growth can occur.
This handy graphic by Kristin Wiens is a great reminder of the 5 Steps (aka Practices) of Shanker Self-Reg®:
- Reframe the Behaviour
- Recognize the Stressors
- Reduce Stressors
- Reflect: Enhance Stress Awareness
- Restore energy: Develop Strategies

Self-Reg will indeed make a difference in dealing with problems like explosive behaviour, aggression, defiance, tantrums, persistent crying, bouts of frenzy and constant arguing. But to address these issues we need to learn about the crucial distinction that Self-Reg draws between Blue Brain, Red Brain, and Brown Brain.
This infographic presents a set of techniques for reframing common obstacles in child-parent relationships, favouring constructive methods for stress reduction, meeting needs, and teaching skills.
Our flagship Self-Reg Foundations Certificate Program has been a game-changer for thousands of learners, bringing them to an entirely new understanding of what makes people tick. Join Stuart Shanker and Susan Hopkins as they take you deep into the science of self-regulation and stress, including the brain/body stress system, how stress affects children’s behaviour and the importance of relationships in self-regulation and learning.
School leaders today are confronted with behavioural, emotional, and cognitive challenges far in excess of what their predecessors had to contend with. The Leadership for Self-Reg School Certificate Program has been developed specifically for school leaders: with the knowledge and guidelines needed for their school to become a centre of deep learning, in all its many facets.
