JULY 4-15, 2022





Join Stuart Shanker, Susan Hopkins and Self-Reggers from around the world online to explore Self-Reg Havens in our third virtual symposium. A Haven is not only a place. Havens are nurtured through our actions, through people, our relationships and the spaces held between. In a Haven, everyone feels safe in every way: physically, neuroceptively, emotionally, socially and culturally. In a Haven, Self-Reg frames all and where values come before action plans. Havens are not about perfection, but a social ecology of people – children, educators, staff, families – contributing their strengths and skills in healthy and interdependence-promoting ways. The safety and relationships found in a Haven unlock the child’s potential and learning can occur.

Join us at SRSS to learn how you can create a Self-Reg Haven in your school, early years center, home, organization or community!
