Self-regulation Strategies for your Stressed Out Teen: A Workshop for Parents

Stress is rampant in our society, not just among adults, but alarmingly so in our children. Jean Twenge, in her book “Generation Me”, stated that we are experiencing 5X more stress than in the great depression. We live in a world where we are overloaded with sensory stimuli and stressors. How we effectively and efficiently deal with a stressor and recover from the effort will have a significant impact on our overall mental and physical health as well as our happiness and success in life. Self-regulation is this ability to deal with a stressor and recover from that effort. Join Laura Paiement, pediatric physiotherapist, in an exciting workshop where you will learn more about…

  • the adolescent brain

  • the adolescent brain on stress

  • how to help your adolescent deal with stress and be more resilient

  • self-regulation strategies for parenting

You will leave with an understanding on how to teach your children to develop these internal resources that not only impacts their learning but also impacts their overall health and wellness.
