Self Regulation Parent Info Night

Palliser Regional Schools is proud to partner with the Mehrit Centre on a self-regulation project and will be hosting a parent information night on Thursday, September 28 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Menno Simons Christian School.

The Mehrit Centre is led by renowned professor Dr. Stuart Shanker and his work focuses on self-regulation and how to teach children to manage their stress, emotions and behaviours. This 5-step process looks at the stress cycle and teaches students how to manage stressors by:

  • Reframing the behaviour
  • Recognize the stressors
  • Reduce the stress
  • Reflect: Enhance stress awareness
  • Respond: develop personalized strategies to promote resilience & restoration

Effective self-regulation requires learning to recognize and respond to stress in all its many facets, positive and negatives. Susan Hopkins from the Mehrit Centre will provide an overview of the self-regulation model and answer questions.
