Self-regulation is a person’s ability to monitor, adjust and manage their energy levels, attention, emotions, thoughts and behaviours so that they are able to engage productively and appropriately within their environment.  The processes involved in self-regulation can be divided into three broad areas:

  • Sensory Regulation: the ability to obtain and sustain the appropriate level of alertness in order to respond appropriately to the sensory stimuli present.
  • Emotional Regulation: the ability to respond to social rules with a range of emotions through appropriately initiating, inhibiting, or modulating their behaviour /emotional responses.
  • Cognitive Regulation: the ability to monitor and manage self-control, demonstrate appropriate attention, persistence and mental flexibility to engage in cognitive processes required for problem solving.

Self- regulation is a learned, developmental skill and is a key building block which underpins a child’s ability to mature emotionally, cognitively and socially.  It directly influences a child’s occupational performance in self-care, academic and social participation. Increasingly, occupational therapists are asked to provide an understanding of challenges to self-regulation experienced by children and offer suggestions for strategies which may enhance their participation across the tasks they want and need to do.

 Workshop Objectives – this practical workshop will assist participants to

  • Develop an understanding of self-regulation, including its development and factors influencing its effective use
  • Use an occupational performance framework to understand an individual’s self-regulation challenges
  • Design strategic interventions that provide tools for children to develop their self-regulation capabilities and enhance their participation across environments

This workshop is suitable for occupational therapists.
