So… You’ve embraced Self-Reg. You’re excited. Self-Reg has made a huge difference in your life and/or your practice. Naturally you want to share this knowledge with others. You feel sure it can help them too.
THE QUESTION IS HOW?
How do you share your Self-Reg zeal and excitement without coming across like someone pushing the latest new age health fix? Or yet another “program” that is supposedly better than the dozens of programs of methods your friend has already been exposed to? We all like to share our newfound insights and strategies. And well we should. But doing so effectively can be tricky.
What are some good strategies for sharing Self-Reg learning and its transformative benefits with friends and colleagues?
In the comments below, share what you’ve learned about sharing the Self-Reg love. Tell us about approaches that worked for you (or ones that didn’t), and let us know what happened as a result.
I’m a teacher candidate at UBC in Nelson, BC, and we’ve been learning about social-emotional regulation in the classroom (I learned about it in relation to parenting from my mom (also a teacher) and from reading about it when my kids were younger).
During my upcoming practicum I’m doing inquiry into Ross Greene’s CPS method, and I found your site from one of your infographics which references Greene and was posted in the gooddayswithkids.com blog (it cites you as the source). I was THRILLED to realize you’re Canadian and I’ve been exploring your site for the past couple of hours. I see lots of commonalities with Greene’s methods and appreciate your extension into the vision of a just society. I really resonate with “the gardener benefits just as much as the garden” in one of your other posts, as I certainly recognize situations and instances where my own self-reg is needed.
Just thought I’d say thank you for the information, and that I’m now going to be drawing on your approaches as well for my inquiry question, and I’ll let you know (as you request above) what worked!
