The ability to regulate oneself is increasingly recognized as a critical developmental process that is central to adaptive functioning and resilience.  Self regulation is the ability to regulate one’s self over time and across changing environments. The evidence indicates that the skills involved can be nurtured and promoted from the very earliest years. This presentation discusses the nature of self regulation, how it plays out from infancy onwards, what can go wrong as children develop, and what can be done to establish a good foundation for the development of self regulation.
