About this event

Self-regulation is the capacity of a person to control their attention, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Emerging during infancy and evolving across the lifespan, self-regulation requires a person to monitor, manage, and control their cognitive, affective, and physical responses to the world as it evolves around them.

The critical nature of self-regulation is emphasized by the fact that it predicts both short- and long-term outcomes across the lifespan in diverse contexts ranging from social situations to school and work. When deficits arise in this critical area of functioning, several consequences can result. As such, it is imperative for professionals to understand this important and complex topic.

Designed for professionals who work with clients impacted by mental health and/or substance use disorders, this comprehensive, Zoom-based training series, features 15 different, evidence-based livestream training modules that cover different aspects of self-regulation.

Each of the comprehensive training webinars is approximately two-hours in length and accompanied by PowerPoint slides, handouts, and access to other resources. A diverse array of topics will be covered throughout this continuing education training series.

Participants have the option of taking a specific training in the series to obtain a certificate of attendance or completing all training webinars to earn a series completion certificate. In order to obtain the series completion certificate, participants must attend a minimum of 12 out of 15 trainings in this series.
