Optimizing Self-Regulation and Managing Big Emotions

May 7 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm MDT


EXPERT:  Caroline Buzanko, Ph.D., R. Psych

This all-day session is part of the Edmonton Educators Workshop Seriesp Series May 6 – 8, 2024. Attend in person or live stream.

In today’s world, our children and youth face an unprecedented level of stress and pressure, making it hard to effectively self-regulate and manage day-to-day stressors. As parents, educators, and mental health professionals, it’s essential that we equip ourselves with effective strategies to help children and teens develop the skills they need to navigate life’s challenges. When they don’t know how to manage those emotions, problem behaviours often result and can negatively affect their physical, psychological, academic, and social well-being. For many, they struggle to meet even the most basic expectations. It is essential they receive the right support.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain self-regulation and emotional management in children and teens.
  • Identify the role of emotions and how they show up.
  • Differentiate misbehaviour from stress behaviour.
  • Address the sensory, language and executive functioning processing deficits that get in the way of self-regulation.
  • Discuss the importance of co-regulation and how to best support children and teens.
  • Teach children and teens what they need to know boost their emotional literacy.
  • Apply practical evidenced-based tools and techniques to promote healthy emotional regulation and coping skills in children and teens.
  • Implement techniques to help children and teens cope with challenging situations.
  • Develop an increased capacity to support children and teens in their emotional needs.
