Recent advances in developmental neuroscience are dramatically altering attitudes towards the possibility of maximizing the educational potential of every child. Scientists now understand that the better children can self-regulate, the better they can rise to the challenge of mastering ever more complex skills and concepts. But what exactly is self-regulation, how does it develop, why do some children struggle with it, and what can we as parents, caregivers and teachers do to enhance its development?
Using Shanker Self-Reg®, a powerful method for understanding stress and managing tension and energy, this presentation will provide an introduction to Self-Reg and discuss:
- The impact of an excessive stress load on energy, mood and behaviour
- The limbic system and the brain
- The five domains of Self-Reg: biological, emotion, cognitive, social and prosocial
- The difference between self-regulation and self-control
- Individual differences in stress reactivity, including the difference between stress behaviour and misbehaviour
- What you can do to enhance other’s self-regulation
