Creating a Safe Place: Teaching Self-Regulation & Understanding Feeling Buddies
Research shows that self-regulation is the prerequisite skill needed to create safe, effective learning environments. The Safe Place is a learning center where children can go to change their inner states from upset to calm. Adults practice the Power of Perception and the Skill of Composure as they coach children in the Safe Place. Participants will leave this session with a basic design for a Safe Place, and strategies for coaching children through the Five Steps of Self-Regulation: I Am, I Calm, I Feel, I Choose, and I Solve.
