Promoting Self-Regulation with the Bottom-Up Approach with Minnie Mossop
Research has shown that self-regulation is one of the key life skills related to learning as well as emotional, social, and physical well-being. From taking turns, to expressing their big emotions appropriately, infants and toddlers require much learning, practice, and support from Early Childhood Educators. During this workshop, Early Childhood Educators will be introduced to their crucial role as co-regulators while discussing the development of regulation. They will explore different strategies to meet an individual child’s needs based on tackling different levels of the brain. This workshop is designed for Early Childhood Educators, especially those who work with infants and toddlers in group child care settings.
Dr. Minnie Mossop is a passionate infant and toddler specialist with a Ph.D. and MA in Infant and Early Childhood Development and an M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education. Her research interests cover various mental health areas (e.g., attachment, brain development, co-regulation) of young children, especially infants and toddlers. She is a faculty member of the Early Childhood Education Program at Douglas College. She has also supported hundreds of families and ECEs in North America through online/offline consultations and group workshops.
