Creating Co-Regulation Supports for Adolescents: What, Why, and How

A University-Based Child and Family Policy (CFP) Consortium  webinar held in collaboration with SRCD.
Event Details

During this webinar, speakers presented a co-regulation model for adolescents that was developed based on cross-disciplinary theory and literature reviews.The initial work on this model was supported by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) through the creation of the Self-Regulation and Toxic Stress Series.

The presentation:

  • provided ACF’s rationale for this work;
  • described the co-regulation model and how it can be translated into specific actions; and
  • addressed how co-regulation approaches are similar to and differ from parent education and therapy programs, how they can be integrated into existing programs, and how they can promote wellbeing on a public health scale.
