Self Regulation 2022

June 10 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Self-regulation is a skill everyone needs to thrive across all ages. It is a common occupational therapy goal for occupational therapists working with children and families, and also one which has very varied research. It is considered to be an essential skill for development, and something that can impact every area of our life, at every point. Yet there are such different views of what it actually is, and how to develop self-regulation.

This workshop comes from a lens supporting children, families and adults around children to learn self-regulation, however the concepts and models are applicable across ages. Here are some of the topics that we will cover in this workshop:

  • What is self-regulation? Looking into the differing definitions and perceptions of self-regulation in practice, and society. Self-regulation can be an ambiguous topic so we will go through some of the fields of thought, and the evidence behind these, to delve into what self-regulation actually is.
  • An overview of self-regulation frameworks and tools, and the evidence behind these.
  • Developing self-regulation: assessment and intervention approaches for practice.
