The Self-Reg Parenting Program, delivered through TMC’s e-School, explains the principles of Shanker Self-Reg®, and practical ways parents can use Self-Reg to:

  • gain a whole new understanding of their child’s behaviour and how to respond to it
  • learn the impacts of excess stress on children’s behaviour and mood
  • come to grips with their own stress and how it affects their parenting
  • identify and address the subtle and hidden stressors that affect children in ways that parents might not realize
  • find out how other parents use Self-Reg strategies to deal with real-life parenting situations and problems

The course material consists of videos which parents can watch at their convenience, and rewatch as often as they like over a 6 month period.

Contributors to the course content include:

  • Dr. Stuart Shanker, originator of the Self-Reg framework and author of Self-Reg: How to help your child (and you) break the stress cycle and successfully engage with life
  • Dr. Susan Hopkins, Executive Director of the MEHRIT Centre
  • Dr. Jean Clinton, a child and adolescent psychiatrist from McMaster University with a special interest in parenting and parent-child relationships
  • Vicki Parnell, administrator of the Self-Reg Parenting Facebook Group

Dr. Shanker and Susan Hopkins provide the core information on Self-Reg and the five-step Shanker Method®. The course will also show parents how to apply Self-Reg strategies in their day-to-day parenting through videos with Vicki Parnell. It includes videos in which parents share their experiences and “aha moments” of using Self-Reg strategies in a variety of practical real-life settings.
