Co-Regulation Strategies: Practical Tools for Program Staff to Foster Youth Self-Regulation


What is co-regulation? Why does it matter? How can I integrate co-regulation into my program or practice? Join interventionist and nurse-educator Aly Frei to explore co-regulation, its importance for youth development, and its potential to improve program outcomes.

Co-regulation is a term that helps describe the important interactions between adults and young people that foster youth self-regulation.  Self-Regulation is a central ingredient in lifelong success, predicting healthy relationships, economic self-sufficiency, and physical and emotional well-being. Because of rapid change in youths’ brains and bodies, adolescence is an important time for adults to promote self-regulation development.

Through co-regulation, adults form relationships where youth feel cared for and known; co-create safe and nurturing environments; and give youth opportunities to practice self-regulation skills and reflect on how to apply them in their lives. Integrating co-regulation strategies into youth service delivery is a promising approach for improving program implementation and youth outcomes.


Webinar participants will be able to:

  1. Explore the components of co-regulation
  2. Describe the important role that youth-serving practitioners have in supporting self-regulation development.
  3. Identify practical strategies and lessons learned from one project to help guide the integration of co-regulation into your program.
