Course Description

Canadian expert, Dr. Stuart Shanker, has developed a framework for understanding how young children develop self-regulation skills. He has identified five aspects of self-regulation which have to be managed both individually and as inter-connected areas of reaction and response. This module will look, in more depth, at the second of the five areas, emotional regulation, focusing on the challenges for children as they attempt to regulate both positive and negative emotions and expression of their feelings.
