Zones of Regulation with Kim Griffin

When it comes to zones of regulation, often they’re not fully understood or correctly used in schools with the assumption that they are good or bad. Kim Griffin joins Dale today to shed light on this misconception!

Green = good

Red = bad

In today’s podcast ‘Zones of regulation’, Kim provides clarity and insights on this important topic as she:

  • Explains the zones and their original purpose
  • Summarises information from a book about the zones
  • Reflects on personal experiences
  • Considers how schools use them
  • Raises awareness that not all children feel emotions in the exact same way
  • Discusses research findings

“At the end of the day, you’re trying to support self-regulation and that is trying to support levels of arousal or alertness in the body.”

Kim Griffin

By understanding zones of regulation, we can better educate children on how to keep themselves safe and how to avoid triggers.
