This seminar begins with a review of neurobiological processes involved in the development of self-regulation. Further, participants will learn how to communicate knowledge of the brain and its role in self-regulation to parents and children in ways that are more easily grasped and help them to understand the purpose of various interventions. Participants will also learn about the vital role parents/caregivers, clinicians and teachers play in co-regulation. Finally, this seminar includes introduction of over 15 practical, age-appropriate (including play-based) interventions that can be used in therapy sessions or in the classroom to help promote development of self-regulation in children and teens.
