The MEHRIT Centre's 8th Annual Self-Reg Summer Symposium

About this event

Virtual Self-Reg Summer Symposium

July 4 – 15, 2022

Our 8th annual Self-Reg Summer Symposium is coming your way this July!


Join Stuart Shanker, Susan Hopkins and Self-Reggers from around the world to explore Self-Reg Havens in our third virtual symposium. A Haven is not only a place. Havens are nurtured through our actions, through people, our relationships and the spaces held between. In a Haven, everyone feels safe in every way: physically, neuroceptively, emotionally, socially and culturally. In a Haven, Self-Reg frames all and where values come before action plans. Havens are not about perfection, but a social ecology of people – children, educators, staff, families – contributing their strengths and skills in healthy and interdependence-promoting ways. The safety and relationships found in a Haven unlock the child’s potential and learning can occur.

Stuart Shanker says he knows when he is in a Self-Reg Haven within 90 seconds of walking in the front door. Do you? SRSS 2022 will be our deepest dive yet into exactly what that means and give you the spark and direction on how to move every context to a relationship-based Haven. We will explore:

  • Hopes (the science), Hurdles & Hows when nurturing a Self-Reg Haven
  • The 5 all-important look fors of a Haven: Safe, Rooted, Balanced, Capable & Trusted
  • The importance of being WIRED for well-being; Wellness, Inclusion, Resilience, Equity & Development
  • How to tackle explosive or disruptive behaviour, staff well-being & morale, happy homes and much more with a Self-Reg, not self-control, lens grounded in neuroscience

No two Havens are the same, they reflect those who reside within them, including you. Come learn how with daily luminary talks with Stuart Shanker, Susan Hopkins & Jean Clinton, with more presenters to be announced, Self-Reg 101 workshops, guided dialogues, Self-Reg TED-style talks, Self-Reg activities and more. Confirmed luminary talks with Stuart Shanker:

  • The Pathway to a Safe and Secure Childhood – a focus on the early years
  • What Can Parents Do in Such Stressful Times
  • Is an Emotionally Safe School More than Just a Dream?

Join us at SRSS to learn how you can create a Self-Reg Haven in your school, early years center, home, organization or community!

As a team here at The MEHRIT Centre we are longing for the day when we can return to SRSS in person, but for 2022 we will be online. Having said that, we can't deny the incredible perks of our flexible online symposium format! No need to travel or to be somewhere at a specific time. SRSS 2022 will take place over a two-week period, with new content released each day. There will be ample opportunities to join us live for presentations and activities, but you will be able to access all content until August 31, 2022.

Please note, we do offer equity pricing for this event. We have a limited number of these tickets available and ask that if you are a funded organization or if you are receiving funding for your ticket that you please leave the lower cost tickets for those who are paying personally.
