Early trauma, whether prenatal or postnatal, has a significant impact on children’s ability to regulate their emotions and their response to stressful situations. But research now demonstrates that children can learn to self-regulate by recognizing their internal state and using a three-step process:

  • Start with relaxation (“Take a deep breath and relax”).

  • Use self-reflection to identify big feelings and acknowledge a sense of safety (“I am safe”).

  • Affirm for themselves that they are competent to return themselves to a state of calm (“I can handle this”).

This chapter of Guided Growth provides teachers and parents guidelines for helping children develop competence in each of these three areas, a set of strategies that the child can utilize throughout a lifetime, both at school and in the home.
