My Self-Reg work
I am a consultant with The Mehrit Centre, where I have completed the Foundations course, the Facilitators program, and the Reframed course. I have presented on The Mehrit Centre’s self-regulation framework to teachers and parents as well as to adults seeking a deeper understanding of their own regulation.
For anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of Self-Reg, I am available for talks and workshops. Please contact me for further information.
What is Self-Reg?
Self-Reg is an innovative approach to understanding the effects of excessive stress on behaviour, social-emotional development, intelligence, empathy, motivation, and character, developed by Dr Stuart Shanker (hyperlink: https://selfregulationinstitute.org/about-2/dr-stuart-shanker/) and made available through The Mehrit Centre (hyperlink: https://self-reg.ca/our-mission-values/). The Shanker Method® brings together cutting-edge insights from neuroscience, physiology, psychology and clinical practice into a framework for deepening awareness of children’s stressors. This knowledge lays the groundwork for exploring effective, growth-promoting self-regulation practices.
You can also hear more from me and my co-hosts Cathy Horder and Trish Holley, also a Self-Reg Facilitator, in our new podcast series for supporting families of children who lived through the bushfires of 2019-20.
In “Self-Reg and the Elderly,” Cathy Horder, Self-Reg Facilitator Robyn Gild and I discuss aged care in Australia from a Self-Reg Perspective.
