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.
This workshop, rooted in the ideas and concepts of the new handbook, will show educators a path and process for embedding Self-Reg in teaching and learning environments.
- Making the shift from trying to “manage” student behaviour to seeking to understand student’s behaviour and read the signs of excess stress
- The Energy-Centred Teaching Model, which links Self-Reg practices with tools and strategies that teachers already use
- Examples and scenarios of how Self-Reg practice developed in several schools
- The four Self-Reg journeys: SEEDS, SUNRISE, QUILT and HAVEN: four stages which help educators identify where they are on the Self-Reg continuum
- How to develop a Self-Reg plan based on your stage of Self-Reg knowledge and practice
- Self-Reg and students with special needs and challenges
