Jody McVittie: How to Teach Self-Regulation & Why You Should

Great, hard-working teachers (and parents) can get frustrated trying to teach when they can’t get their students to sit still and pay attention. In many ways this problem is getting worse – more and more children struggle with their ability to self-regulate. Early exposure to toxic stress and trauma impacts many more children than we think. But teachers, and parents, can understand the brain science behind self-regulation and teach students about their own brains so everyone can remain cool, calm and connected. Dr. McVittie will explain to us why teaching regulation strategies is a better discipline plan than traditional incentive programs and give us some powerful, yet simple, research-based strategies to improving self-regulation in your classroom and home.
