Nap Time Webinars – Co-Regulation as the Path to Self-Regulation

Join us for the February installment of “Nap Time Webinars”. We’ve created this new series to help dayhome professionals enjoy some free GROUP professional development during quiet time. These sessions are roughly 1 hour long and include an informative webinar provided by Early Childhood Webinars. Join us at 1PM on the last Friday of every month inside our Facebook Group – we’ll use Zoom to watch each webinar as a group.

Co-Regulation as the Path to Self-Regulation, by Dr. Donna Housman and Emily Stone

Long before the pandemic and social and global unrest, we were seeing a dramatic rise in children’s stress, anxiety, and dysregulated behaviour heading straight for a mental health crisis. This unprecedented time has exacerbated that situation exponentially. In fact, all the leading health organizations have declared a national state of emergency on children’s mental health.

Child psychologist and early education expert, Dr. Housman, and early childhood educator Emily Stone will guide you to:

  • Understand the foundational need for positive responsive relationships in the early years
  • Explore the role co-regulation plays in the development of self-regulation
  • Understand what co-regulation is and how we can put this into practice each day
  • Discover how co-regulation helps children take ownership of their ability to self-regulate their emotions and become and be the boss of their feelings, and through the process develop self-control and empathy.
  • Learn how we can use those “meltdown moments” to lay the critical foundation of emotional intelligence
  • Understand the impact self-regulation has on learning, behaviour, and empathy
