Self-Regulation and Young Children Presentation

Millbrook EarlyON Child and Family Centre staff is very excited to welcome Dr. Brenda Smith-Chant to the centre for an informative evening.

Dr. Smith-Chant is the Director of Research for the Self-Regulation Institute as well as an Associate Professor of the Psychology Department of Trent University. Prior to becoming a researcher, Brenda was a therapeutic foster parent for teenage girls in a small community north of Algonquin Park.  She began to see the damaging effects of trauma, stress, and anxiety on her foster children, and how feelings of safety allowed them to blossom.

This evening will offer information on self-regulation and co-regulation.  Participants will gain a deeper understanding of self-regulation for both children and adults. We will also look at the role of parents and caregivers in using co-regulation to help children develop their ability to self-regulate and flourish. KG

The event takes place on Tuesday October 22nd from 5:30pm to 7:30pm and will offer limited child minding services. Please call 705-932-7088 or email for more information or to register. Staff looks forward to seeing you there!
