Self-Regulation Parent Information Evening September 26, 2017 in Calgary, 6-7 pm

Self-Regulation Parent Information Evening

Palliser Regional Schools is proud to partner with the Mehrit Centre on a self-regulation project and will be hosting a parent information night on Thursday, September 28from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Menno Simons Christian School.

The Mehrit Centre is led by renowned professor Dr. Stuart Shanker and his work focuses on self-regulation and how to teach children to manage their stress, emotions and behaviours.   This 5-step process looks at the stress-cycle and teaches students how to manage stressors by:

Ø  Reframing the behaviour

Ø  Recognize the stressors

Ø  Reduce the stress

Ø  Reflect:  Enhance stress awareness

Ø  Respond:  develop personalized strategies to promote resilience & restoration

Effective self-regulation requires learning to recognize and respond to stress in all its many facets, positive and negatives. Susan Hopkins from the Mehrit Centre will provide an overview of the self-regulation model and answer questions.

About Vulcan Community Health Care Mentorship Program: Students were mentored by doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, health care aides, lab technicians as well as dental assistants and dentists. Throughout the Mentorship Program, students completed a culminating activity that explored the fields they are interested in and what they may need to get there. Each project is as unique as the ladies who created it. The entire experience began with the students exploring what they wanted to gain knowledge about. They created their driving questions. Why did they want this? What could they learn from their mentor? Their projects continually evolved as they dove deeper and their curiosity created new driving questions.
