Trauma-Engaged Practice & Co-Regulation

Co-regulation is when one person helps another manage their emotions through warm and responsive interactions. By learning and practicing co-regulation, educators can build healthier communities for our students and families.

Did you know?

Children look to the caring adults in their lives to help co-regulate their emotions and behaviors.

The simplest example of co-regulation is when you have an anxious child sitting in your lap; taking a deep breath soothes them and you at the same time. Your calm engenders their calm.
