The Self-Reg Show 

Spend some quality time with Stuart Shanker & Susan Hopkins to talk about science, stories and strategies in The MEHRIT Centre’s newest podcast: The Self-Reg Show.

Join Stuart and Susan for a taste of Self-Reg and explore why it is so crucial for the wellness of children, youth and even us adults today more than ever. Shanker Self-Reg® is a framework and a five-step process that can be used by educators, parents, or anyone dreaming about a world where well-being comes first. Tune in every other week to explore how there is no such thing as a bad kid, why we must always ask Why? and Why Now? when it comes to behaviour and so much more.

Welcome to the Self-Reg Show!
