Webinar: Teen Self-Regulation: Cultivating Self-Control & Responsible Decision-Making Skills




Grades 7-12

What You Will Learn

A May 2014 EdWeek article suggested that in order for educators to be “certain that standard disciplinary policies do not unintentionally set the foundation for “school-to-prison” pipelines, teachers need to be informed of neurobiology and how to establish emotionally secure relationships with students that respect their toxic stress.” 

National consultant, author and therapist Brad Chapin has developed a framework that has been proven to help educators to establish these emotionally secure relationships and to equip students for challenges in life – a process he calls Self-Regulation.  Self-Regulation includes a set of skills necessary for academic success, emotional control and healthy social interaction. 

When a teen is lacking in his/her ability to self-regulate emotions and behavior, negative outcomes are easily observable. Helping young people improve their Self-Regulation skills can help them to better handle anger issues, anxieties, impulsiveness, academic performance, classroom behavior challenges, self-esteem struggles, social troubles and more.  Helping students improve their Self-Regulation skills helps teachers, counselors, social workers, administrators and other educators to bring about observable and sustained positive changes in young people.

In this strategy-packed 90-minute webinar, Brad Chapin will provide concrete lessons targeting each of the 3 skill-training areas identified in the Self-Regulation Training System (Physical, Emotional and Cognitive).  Included will be practical insights, recommendations and learning activities that are based upon the evidence-based approaches used in cognitive-behavior psychology. The content of this seminar is consistent with the principles underlying the RTI/MTSS, PBIS and Responsibility-Centered Discipline movements. The presenter will provide attendees with creative, fresh and engaging approaches for individual students, small groups and classrooms in middle and secondary schools.
