When a student can’t read, we teach him how. When a student struggles with algebra, we give her skills to help. When a student has trouble behaving, what do we do?
Self-Regulation skills can be taught. Not all students have the same ability to regulate emotions, behaviors and responses to difficulties. And those who have not mastered Self-Regulation can be very disruptive to instruction time. What if educators included lessons on Self-Regulation as part of the curriculum? Everyone can benefit from the training on how to recognize triggers and how to manage responses to them. Rather than trying to modify behavior and/or removing the stimuli that results in unacceptable behavior, Self-Regulation training gives students control over their responses.
During this 90-minute webinar Brad Chapin, a master’s level psychologist and nationally-recognized speaker, will share strategies that have helped students develop skills necessary for success in academic performance, relationships and overall wellness. Brad will demonstrate that personal responsibility for behaviors and self-discipline are stronger predictors of academic success than IQ.
