In 2003, they were honored to receive the American Occupational Therapy Association’s Recognition of Achievement Award for “Excellence in Intervention Development and Dissemination” for outstanding contributions to our field.
This workshop is intended for all adults interested in learning practical strategies to support their self-regulation to feel more alert, energized, productive, and balanced.
The Your Best Self Online Course is appropriate for Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced Levels. Those who are new to the Alert Program® or self-regulation concepts (Introductory Level) will hear the information presented in a way that they will understand its application to daily function. And those who are familiar with the Alert Program® (Intermediate Level) or even teaching about sensory integration concepts (Advanced Level), will hear new ways to support their own self-regulation and incorporate those supports into their daily lives as well as better support their clients.
Participants will be able to:
1) Describe their own level of alertness during their daily routine to improve their sense of well-being and productivity.
2) Identify their own alerting or calming strategies to help their day flow more smoothly.
3) Apply self-regulation awareness and knowledge of “mismatches” to better navigate and enhance personal and work relationships.
Course Description and Outline:
This course is designed so that the participant can begin or continue to implement the Alert Program® in their own daily routines. Video and additional resources (links to articles, websites, etc.) will cover the following information:
