We know from research that the early years (0-6) are a critical time for the development of self-regulation, a time when responses to stress are “wired” creating patterns that can be hard to change later in life. What matters most in these early years is for children to feel safe and secure, and helped by caregivers to calm them down when they are frightened, upset or distressed. When caregivers respond to children’s stress in a caring and calm way, children learn they can ‘get over’ the stress and return to feeling safe and secure again, and they trust that their feelings matter, that comfort is available and that it is worthwhile to work on managing difficult emotions.
Through the lens of the Dalai Lama Centre’s (DLC) Heart-Mind Well-Being (HMWB) framework, this workshop presents the latest science and practice promoting young children’s capacity to be Secure and Calm and learn strategies for self regulation. Secure and Calm is one of the five positive human qualities embedded in the HMWB framework. DLC has taken the lead on translating and sharing emerging research that aims to shine a light on how to promote the heart-mind wellbeing of young children in communities across B.C
