2019 Breakout Session: Creating a Safe Place – Teaching Self-Regulation
Research proves that self-regulation is an essential skill for creating safe, effective learning environments. In Conscious Discipline, the Safe Place is the centerpiece of your self-regulation program. It is a place where children (and adults) can change their inner state from upset to calm. Once calm, they are ready to learn and problem-solve.
In this breakout session from the 2019 Elevate SEL Conference, Master Instructor Kim Jackson explains how to learn and teach self-regulation, create and effectively use a Safe Place in your classroom, and coach children through the five steps of self-regulation.
The accompanying handout walks you through a Safe Place implementation plan designed for Pre-K-2nd and adaptable for all others.
