Webinar-Based Professional Learning Series for Teams

Looking for low-cost, high-impact learning opportunities for your school team during these unique times?

The MEHRIT Centre offers two very economical and practical webinar-based courses for teams; Self-Reg Framework 101 and The Shanker Method 101. These six-part courses are taken online, so learner groups can engage from anywhere. No need to find times when a group can meet face-to-face! Though we do recommend groups discuss their learning and take part in the activities together.

Each course is intended for a single school team of up to 25 individuals and only costs $600. But, if you need to stretch that a bit, or use the course with multiple school teams/groups, feel free to contact

We have just extended our access period to this course, making the webinars available for viewing until the end of 2020.

Self-Reg Framework 101 

This online course is a great way to introduce Self-Reg to your school team! The webinar sessions are hosted by Dr. Susan Hopkins, who explains the science and theory behind Self-Reg in six separate 40-minute sessions with a focus on the 5 Domains of Self-Reg. With thought provoking and diving deeper activities built into each webinar, there is ample time for reflection and practice between each module.

Self-Reg Framework 101 is offered for a single site team, allowing you to educate up to 25 individuals, for just $600!


What’s Included?

  • Module 1: Intro to the Self-Reg Framework and the Shanker Method

  • Module 2:  The Bio Domain 101

  • Module 3:  The  Emotion Domain 101

  • Module 4:  The Cognitive Domain 101
  • Module 5:  The Social Domain 101
  • Module 6:  The Prosocial Domain 101

The Shanker Method 101

This six session online course dives into the 5-Step Shanker Method® at the heart of Self-Reg practice; Reframe, Recognize, Reduce, Reflect & Respond. The webinar-based course will also deepen your understanding of stressors across the five domains (biological, emotion, cognitive, social, prosocial). The Shanker Method 101 is designed to build on the insights from Self-Reg Framework 101, but the course can also be taken as a stand-alone option for teams who wish to focus right in on the practice of Self-Reg.

Shanker Method 101 is offered for a single site team, allowing you to educate up to 25 individuals for just $600!
