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.
The early years are a time of extraordinary growth and development. Children’s capacity for self- regulation—how they manage energy expenditure in response to stressors and then recover from the effort—becomes wired during these critical years.

This graphic, by Kristin Wiens, offers 10 practical strategies that will help you begin to embed Shanker Self-Reg® at the core of your educational practice.
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.
The Self-Reg in Early Childhood Development Certificate Program explores child development from birth to age 10 and is relevant for anyone who has or works with young children, neurodiverse children, challenging children or children with special rights or needs. Learn the core underpinnings of Self-Reg and why we truly believe that there is no such thing as a bad kid.
This Professional Learning series will focus on Self-Reg 101 for all groups, shifting away from exclusively a school focus. Be that corporate, law enforcement, legal, government or research teams, Susan Hopkins will guide you through both the 5 Domains (Biological, Emotion, Cognitive, Social & Prosocial) and the 5 Steps (Reframe, Recognize, Reduce, Reflect & Restore) of the Shanker Self-Reg® Framework.
