Managing the Meltdowns: A Workshop on Self-Regulation Strategies for Teachers, Professionals, Parents and Caregivers
Are you a professional, parent or caregiver who wants a child (9-13 years) to learn how to control his/her meltdowns?
As a child grows older, his or her ability to self-regulate or control his/her behaviour is essential to forming healthy peer relationships, learning in school, and feeling good about him/herself. This workshop is an extension of the workshop on problem behaviour previously conducted at LDAS but can also be attended as a stand-alone workshop. The workshop
- Reviews and critiques some of the existing strategies available to professionals and caregivers on self-regulation
- Helps you to work with the child to guarantee successful outcomes
- Includes hands-on practical demonstrations on how to facilitate a group to teach children how to recognize and deal with stress.
When: 9am.-3pm. Friday, 27 January 2017
Where: LDAS, Saskatoon at 2221 Hanselman Crt., Saskatoon, SK
Cost: $150 (includes light lunch) and materials
