Self-regulation is a “hierarchical” concept, meaning it applies not just to children and parents, but also to the community in which the family lives. The more self-regulating the community, the more this helps its children and families to self-regulate, and vice versa.

Parents & Families

The foundation of self-regulation is the feeling of calmness and safety that children experience with their parents. Children’s ability to deal with stress in life, whatever its source, stems from the security they experience in their families.

Kindergarten – Grade 12 Education

Self-Reg sees the goals of primary and secondary school education in the same manner as the pioneers of universal education. Our goal is to produce an enlightened and thriving citizenry, with both the will and the ability to sustain a strong and vibrant nation. Schooling provides us with a unique opportunity to build such a capacity in all of our children and youth.

Early Childhood Educators

Early childhood educators must be seen as the vanguards of a society’s future wellbeing. By guiding children through the five steps of Self-Reg, educators are enhancing a child’s capacity to manage the many stressors they will encounter in their lives.

Post-Secondary Education

Post-secondary students are faced with a dramatic surge in the stressors they must deal with, across all five domains. Now more than ever, they need to practice the five steps of Self-Reg in order to rise to the extraordinary challenges that adulthood presents.

Health Practitioners

Self-regulation teaches us that there is no sharp distinction between “physical” and “mental” health. What this means in practice is that “health practitioners” are concerned with the individual’s overall wellbeing, in all five of the domains of Self-Reg.
