GPS for Stress


How would you define RESILIENCE ?
That is the million dollar question after the last couple of unprecedented years. The American Psychological Association defines resilience as "the process and outcome of successfully adapting to difficult or challenging life experiences", in short our ability to "bounce back". But that leaves many of us asking... At what cost? 

Time to REFRAME the Self-Control View of Resilience
Viewing resilience as a matter of will power or a blue-brain set of strategies misses the complexity of the dynamic system the children in our care are experiencing today. Join us here at The MEHRIT Centre for our annual GPS for Stress Summit February 20-24, 2023 where we will dive deeper into understanding resilience in relation to the 5 Self-Reg Practices: Reframe, Recognize, Reduce, Reflect and Restore. Gain new insights from researchers, leaders, educators, caregivers and more, who will share insights into various views on resilience, including:
  • Psychological Resilience
  • Social-Ecological Resilience
  • Biological Resilience
  • The Interbrain as the foundation on which the above rest
A pyramid with the interbrain as the foundation on which psychological, social-ecological and biological views of resilience rest
Who Is This Summit For?
Anyone who works with children and youth, be that ECEs, teachers, EAs, school leaders, OTs, clinicians, councilors and/or parents. We also welcome anyone who is interested in the Self-Reg view of Resilience personally or professionally.

Who We Are

The MEHRIT Centre is Dr. Stuart Shanker’s organization dedicated to understanding how we all respond to stress in the same way: we thrive when it is positive, we struggle when it is excessive. 

With Self-Reg we learn how to transform the dream of a Just Society into a reality, one mind at a time.
We are in the midst of a scientific paradigm-revolution in our understanding of the effects of excessive stress on behaviour, social-emotional development, intelligence, empathy, motivation, and character. The theoretical foundation of the Shanker Self-Reg® framework rests on these recent advances in neuroscience, physiology, psychology and clinical practice. The Shanker Method® explores, explains, and applies these new insights in a way that benefits every child, youth, adult and senior.

Self-Reg provides us not just with the why, but also with next steps on “the how”.
