CE Course Description
Severe childhood stress appears to have lasting effects, with self-regulation-related difficulties seen into adulthood. This CE course provides clarity on how stress may impact the development of self-regulation by operationalizing stress and self-regulation; discussing different perspectives of how stress and self-regulation interact and influence each other; and identifying and addressing important questions in scientific literature with a methodical and comprehensive empirical review of human and nonhuman studies of stress and self-regulation.
