Self-Regulation is a skill everyone needs to manage the daily trials and tribulations. Sometimes we become incapacitated to cope, and with all the pressures on our youth, all too often we are seeing more self-regulation needs in this general population. Managing emotions and monitoring behaviors is a particular challenge for some. Self-regulation skills need to be taught and learned so that our youth have the capacity to manage everyday conflicts, preserve under stress and maintain a mentally healthy state of being.
The Zones of Regulation (2011) curriculum, comprises of lessons and activities designed by Leah Kuypers, M. A. Ed., OTR/L to help students gain skills in the area of self-regulation. The lessons and learning activities are designed to help the students recognize when they’re in the different Zones (states of alertness/moods) as well as learn how to use strategies to regulate the Zone they are in. In addition to addressing self-regulation, the students will be gaining an increased vocabulary of emotional terms, skills in reading facial expressions, perspective on how others see and react to their behavior, insight on events that trigger their behavior, calming and alerting strategies, and problem solving skills.
Zones trainings provide strategies to teach students to become more aware of and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses, managing their sensory needs and improving their ability to problem solve conflicts. Practical ideas are provided that can easily be incorporated into the classroom or home.
The workshop will be presented by Elizabeth Sautter, M.A. CCC
