Self-Regulation for Kids K-12: Strategies for Calming Minds and Behavior
Authors: Patricia K. Tollison / Katherine Synatschk / Gaea Logan
This step-by-step guide helps counselors, behavior specialists, and therapists design a solution-based program to help children and adolescents learn to regulate their behaviors in either individual or group therapy. It begins with research-based explanations of the connections between emotional intelligence, somatic experience, emotional regulation, and relationships, on the one hand, and the ability to self-regulate, on the other. Based on the concept of mindfulness, it explains the SSR model (Strategies for Self-Regulation) and gives somatic and other therapeutic intervention techniques. It closes with an integrated model for use in schools and mental health settings.
Includes case studies, reproducible resources, 57 lesson/activity plans, and CD.
