This seminar includes a foundational introduction to children’s social-emotional development with practical suggestions for assisting the development of self-regulation for young children aged birth to five years.  In the introduction, important terms and contexts are defined including six components of children’s emotional health, including self-regulation.  In section 1, healthy social-emotional development is presented through examination of limbic development for early physiological self-regulation.  In section 2, discussion focuses on the identification of delays in early physiological functioning for young children.  In section 3, descriptions of recommended sensori-motor strategies for improved self-regulation in the areas of sleeping, feeding, muscle tone, activity level, and behavior are introduced.  The content of the seminar is appropriate for families, early childcare professionals, teachers, providers of early intervention services, psychologists, and social workers who work with young children and their families.




If you want to insure a seat at one of our HDI locations or statewide locations, PLEASE REGISTER through the electronic link http://www.hdi.uky.edu/news/events.   As we have a new registration system, you will need to create an account with your email and a password.  All registrants will receive a copy of the Power Point to print off and bring with you several days prior to the Seminar.  




We have CEU approval for Early Childhood Professionals, Social Workers, SLP’s, Vocational Rehab Counselors through their Seminar affiliation and are waiting for expected CEU approvals from the Board of Psych and Licensed Professional Counselors.   Those Social Workers,  Psychologists, and LPC’s  who desire a CEU certificate will be expected to pay a fee of $20 in cash or check, payable to “University of Kentucky.”   This fee helps the Human Development Institute recover the costs of CEU application fees to those Board of Examiners.
