How Co-Regulation Can Help Build Self-Regulation Skills
In a recent podcast (episode #400), I talked about co-regulation. Co-regulation is a way of helping someone develop self-regulation. The person co-regulates by staying present for the individual, helping them navigate a challenging experience and move towards greater self-awareness. This involves a supportive relationship between two or more people that is process-driven — the goal is to help a person self-regulate themselves while in a highly emotional state.
