“Social-emotional learning is without question one of the most important developments in developmental psychology that has occurred over the past decade” - Dr. Stuart Shanker
Study after study has shown that social and emotional competencies correlate strongly with children’s academic performance and their overall health, well-being, and ultimately, life outcomes. Yet actually helping children develop their social-emotional skills has proved to be a daunting challenge. Dr. Shanker will present the Self-Reg approach to SEL. Self-Reg not only explains why we see the correlations that we do, but what we can do to enhance the social-emotional development of each and every child. Dr. Shanker shows how the route to emotional self-awareness and intelligence lies in social engagement rather than social instruction.
This webinar presents an exciting new understanding of the pivotal role that the Self-Reg Early Childhood Educator plays in children’s social-emotional development.
- The crucial difference between seeing social-emotional skills as functional developmental capacities rather than knowledge and behaviours
- How various stressors can impair children’s social-emotional learning
- The importance of reducing the stress of emotions and social interaction so that a child can enjoy the experiences in which social and emotional skills are naturally learned
- The crucial role of adult-child relationships in helping children understand and express their emotions
- Emotional scaffolding to help children who are overstressed by their emotions
- The role of the 5 Practices of Self-Reg in the social-emotional domains
