Neurophysiological Basis of Self-Regulation in Children and Youth
Conway, Anne
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v17 n4 p16-22 2009
Many children and youth have difficulty controlling emotions and impulsive behavior. Brain science is shining new light on the process by which children develop self-regulation and controls from within. This article expands upon Fritz Redl and David Wineman's pioneering work aiding children in the development of flexible and effective controls within. Using this developmental and practice lens, the author explores how research on brain and bio-behavioral development may be used to promote self-regulation.
