Description:

You love your child above all. You want to create a friendly environment for her/him to grow and develop into a happy and moral individual who can spread her/his wings and fly. You believe in the power of parent-child bonding and aim to have a strong and healthy relationship with her/him. Sometimes, however, you just cannot cope with her/his behaviour. You don't get why your child is whining, screaming, shouting, crying, beating, biting, calling you names. You feel helpless and frustrated because nothing seems to work and your child keeps responding with tantrums, meltdowns and whining to everyday situations. More and more often, you find it hard to remain calm even though you try. Maybe you yell at your kid? Maybe you tell her/him things that you later regret? Maybe you do something else that makes you feel guilty later because you haven't managed to be the kind of parent you want to be?

If this sounds familiar, these workshops are for you. They will make you acquainted with the basics of Self-Reg - a method of self-regulation based on the results of years of research in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, medicine, and anthropology. Self-Reg is aimed at recognising and regulating your own and your child's states of arousal and managing your stress and energy.

Tutor: Agnieszka Stążka-Gawrysiak is one of three people in Poland who are certified in Shanker Self-Reg by the MEHRIT Centre. She has a PhD in economics and is economic advisor at a financial safety net institution. Currently she is on maternity leave and studies coaching and mentoring (post-graduate), attends a school for trainers of parents’ support groups, and participates in Level 2 Self-Reg course with the MEHRIT Centre. She offers Self-Reg workshops for parents and practices the Shanker self-regulation method for herself and her family, including three energetic boys, aged 1, 4 and 6.

During Workshop 1 you will learn:

- how stress affects emotions and behaviour,

- what happens in the child's brain when he/she experiences strong emotions and how it affects you,

- how to respond to strong emotions and difficult behaviour of the child so that they don't become canalised,

- what Self-Reg is about.

During Workshop 2 you will learn:

- how stressors from five domains (biological, emotion, cognitive, social and pro-social) can affect your child and what you can do about them,

- how to apply the five steps of Self-Reg to your child and yourself,

- how to teach a child self-regulation.

Workshop 2 builds upon Workshop 1 but can also be helpful for those who haven't participated in it.
