About the event

" is the foundation upon which children build the many skills of emotional and behavioural self-control.'

-Dr. Stephen Porges

We are all wired to connect, to feel, and to sense into what is "alive" in us. Our ability to understand our emotions is an important life skill. Evenmore important is knowing how we can regulate our emotions and co-regulate with others around us.  Self-regulation and co-regulation are part of the developmental process. Co-regulation is different at different phases of child development. Children's capacity for self-regulation grows over time and are dependent on predictable, responsive, and supportive environments.

As we learn to balance and calm our internal sensory systems we are able to:

  • have better physical and mental health
  • appropriately respond to stress, challenges and conflicts
  • nurture and sustain relationships
  • use restorative practices for ourselves and encourage others to do the same

In this learning lab, we will explore the importance of emotional regulation and co-regulation and answer the following questions:

How might we better understand what emotional regulation and co-regulation means?

How might we understand the patterns in our behaviors and how we engage with others using emotional regulation and co-regulation?

How might we harness the power of our emotions and make them be more visible?

These are the questions we will explore in this 90 minute interactive workshop. Please do register only when you can be fully present for the learning session.

For individuals with expendable income, donations are welcome and can support us in providing this work for more people from marginalized sectors.
