Speaker Series: Self-Regulation

May 17th – Self-regulation speaker Trent Doiron – part 1

June 1st – Self-regulation speaker Trent Doiron – part 2

June 15th – Self-regulation speaker Trent Doiron – part 3

7:00-8:30pm via ZOOM

Self-regulation is the ability to manage our thoughts, behavior, and energy to achieve the best outcomes possible in the moment. A person’s self-regulation is influenced by external factors such as their environment and interactions with others. Parents can help their children by learning to co-regulate. Often parents are used to having to manage the outcome of a strong reaction from their child after it occurs. Co-regulating enables parents to use proactive planning to impact a favourable environment before a “situation” potentially occurs. It is far easier to manage energy than it is to manage behaviour.

The Hastings PAC is delighted to introduce our next three-part webinar series on Self-Regulation – what it means and how parents and caregivers can learn co-regulation strategies that can help our children and ourselves. Trent Doiron will be presenting this series and is specialized in self-regulation. Trent is a Youth & Family Worker at Tillicum Community Annex and has been supporting kids in schools with their social-emotional growth and school readiness for nearly 30 years. He has provided training to parents and educators in trauma-informed practice, play-skill development, proactive behaviour interventions, and more.

The content and strategies covered in this series are designed to be applicable to children of all ages, youth and adults. The following is an outline of each session with dates to add to your calendar:

Tuesday, May 17th 7:00-8:30pm
Session 1 – Self-regulation – Explaining the Basics

In this session Trent will discuss the basics of self-regulation and what it looks like, as well as explain why and how it is easier to manage energy than it is to manage behaviour. He will talk us through co-regulation and how it works and why it works, and give us some easy tips for helping ourselves and our kids to stay well regulated.

Wednesday, June 1st 7:00-8:30pm
Session 2 – Self-regulation – The Five Domains

Using the model of Canada’s own expert Dr Stuart Shanker, Trent will introduce us to the biological, emotional, cognitive, social and pro-social aspects to self-regulation. He will explain how this model is a powerful method for understanding stress and managing energy flow, and demonstrate how parents and teachers can better understand children’s stress and enhance self-regulation.

Wednesday, June 15st 7:00-8:30pm
Session 3 – Self-regulation – Adding Tools to the Toolbox

This will be a working session in which Trent will interact with participants to problem-solve together. He will provide self regulation examples with practical tips to affect outcomes. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to bring along questions, challenges, or scenarios that Trent can help to problem-solve with applied strategies.

Speaker Series: Online Safety

The Uncomfortable Topic of Children and Online Pornography: Why You Shouldn’t Wait until High School to Talk About It

Wednesday, April 13th from 7:00 – 8: 30pm via Zoom

The PAC welcomes back Merlyn Horton in our third and final part of this online safety speaker series.

Curiosity about sexuality is a natural and normal part of your child’s development. However, with any reasonable access to the internet, their curiosity can expose them to extreme images and profoundly influence their sexual development. There are online sites available that can offer excellent information to children and youth, but only if we steer them in the right direction and openly talk with them about the effects of online pornography. 

We are delighted to announce that this webinar has been paid for in fully by an anonymous donor, so attendance is FREE for all parents that would like to participate.

Movie Night

Alaskan Nets – Thursday, March 31st at 6pm

Doors will open at 5:30pm. Movie starts at 6pm.

Tickets are FREE! Purchase your free ticket here so that we can keep track of the amount of attendees.

The Hastings Anti-Racism Committee (HARC) will be showing the documentary movie Alaskan Nets in the school gym. The movie comes to us from Tsimshian territory, where director Jeff Harasimowicz tells the story of the community of Metlakatla – the last remaining First Nation reserve in Alaska – and the high school boys basketball team, as they make a run for the state championship. Watch the TRAILER.

Bring a blanket and some movie snacks and let’s have some fun together in person!

So that everyone feels comfortable, we ask that masks are worn

Donations to the PAC’s new bursary fund for Indigenous Hastings graduates are welcomed by cash or cheque at the event.

We can’t wait to see you there!
