The MEHRIT Centre’s flagship course is an excellent learning resource to help educators and those who work with children to create an understanding of how stress affects students’ behaviour and moods, the difference between misbehaviour and stress behaviour, and the importance of relationship in self-regulation. 

In this four-course (approximately 8 month) online program with the start date of March 3rd  2022 Stuart Shanker and Susan Hopkins take you deep into the science of self-regulation and stress including: 

  • how the brain/body stress system works
  • how stress affects children's behaviour and moods
  • the difference between misbehaviour and stress behaviour
  • the importance of relationships in self-regulation and learning

Upon completion, you will receive a certificate identifying that you have completed the Foundations course and can now be referred to as a Self-Reg Champion in your school.
