Intro to Self-Reg for Parents

From TMC's 8th Annual Self-Reg Summer Symposium, join Susan Hopkins in exploring how Self-Reg can be the key to understanding and responding positively to the roots of many behaviour, emotion and social challenges that affect children and families.

“The well-being of children is inseparable from the well-being of the critical adults in their lives.” 
-Dr. Stuart Shanker
The challenges of the last couple of years have placed new demands on the shoulders of parents and caregivers. In this free-of-charge presentation, Susan Hopkins will introduce you to Self-Reg, Dr. Stuart Shanker’s very practical and helpful method that can help parents understand and address the excess stress that is usually at the root of most troubling child behaviour and parenting problems, including the challenges and stress stemming from the last two and a half years. Susan will show you a new path to becoming the parent you’d like to be. 

  • The impacts of excessive stress on kids’ behaviour and moods, and also on parents
  • The difference between misbehaviour and stress behaviour
  • “Hidden stressors” that are affecting today’s children
  • Practical strategies that will help parents recognize and reduce the stressors that contribute children’s behaviour and mood issues
  • The importance of Self-Reg for parents themselves
This is a great chance to dip your toes into Shanker Self-Reg®! We also welcome anyone who works with children to partake of this free online session, as it will be relevant for contexts other than parenting.
