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.
