This newest addition to FREE resources at www.CTC1990.com arose out of numerous workshops. Teachers, parents, and counsellors explored underlying (and universal) mechanisms in calming. This dice game became a fun way of:
- - exploring familiar ways to calm
- - learning how others come to calm
- - expanding personal strategies to get back to calm!
Dr. Bruce Perry has identified a number of ways that we can calm or energize. These broad mechanisms of regulation help shed insight into the many ways of calming (and energizing). Missing from this list (purposefully absent!) are biochemicals that help us calm (e.g., cup of tea, pharmaceuticals, etc.)
Find out more about these strategies in the `Tips for Parents, Educators and Counsellors` found at the back of Instead I ... helping students to survive and thrive at school.
