Self Regulation Seminar
Evidence-Based Strategies to Teach Impulse-Control & Self-Improvement Skills to K-12 Students

Overview

Self-Regulation includes a set of insights and skills students need for academic success, emotional control and healthy social interaction. When a young person 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 challenges, classroom behavior issues, self-esteem struggles, social troubles and more. Helping young people improve their Self-Regulation skills will enable teachers, counselors, social workers, administrators and other educators to see observable and sustained positive changes in young people.

In this one-day seminar, the presenter will provide recommendations and strategies that you will be able to use with all students, and in particular with students who have behavioral and/or emotional self-control issues. 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 and Positive Behavior Supports movements. The presenter will provide creative, fresh and engaging approaches for individual students, small groups, classrooms and the whole school.

Based on the content of the seminar, I will learn:

– To develop a level of understanding of the Self-Regulation framework sufficient for teaching it to students and presenting it to parents

– To apply step-by-step strategies/activities to teach young people how to increase self-regulation including: cooling the flame, my warning signs, melting freeze, you can’t make me laugh, free emotional expression, challenge software program, defiance trap

– To organize and implement strategies in a way that is most effective

– To address smany social/emotional, behavioral and academic problem areas including: anger and oppositional behavior, depression & anxiety, academic performance, chronic impulsiveness, ADHD, motivation, learned helplessness, bullying & other school safety issues

– To access, monitor and report measurable outcomes from the application of self-regulation strategies presented in this seminar
