Promoting Flexible Thinking, Emotional Regulation and Self-Monitoring


Thurs, July 29th, 2021, 3:30-5:30 PM EST

How can executive function strategies help students to learn when their funnels (or brains) get clogged and they become overwhelmed and anxious?  Join us to learn practical, hands-on strategies that help students to think flexibly, overcome obstacles, and reduce stress as they master their work at home and in the classroom.

Promoting Flexible Thinking, Emotional Regulation and Self-Monitoring

Presented by: Lynn Meltzer, Ph.D. and Donna Kincaid, M.Ed.

Cognitive flexibility is critical for school and for life.  When students learn to think flexibly, they can execute tasks more easily, persevere when tasks seem difficult, think outside the box, and consider different solutions.  In contrast, when students are inflexible, they get stuck, are caught up in rigid thinking, and they often give up.  In this workshop, attendees will learn about the importance of cognitive flexibility and its critical role in school performance, growth mindsets, and emotional regulation in school and life.  We will also discuss the connections between students’ cognitive flexibility and their self-concept, persistence, and resilience. Most importantly, we will focus on evidence-based strategies for promoting students’ cognitive flexibility and self-monitoring so that they learn to shift, think flexibly, and monitor their behaviors in academic and social situations.
