Co-Regulation from Birth through Young Adulthood: A Practice Brief provides guidelines for effective co-regulation support at each stage of a child’s development. Three broad categories of support that caregivers can provide to children, youth, and young adults to help them develop foundational self-regulatory skills: provide a warm, responsive relationship, structure the environment, and teach and coach self-regulation skills.

This brief is one of several from a series on self-regulation from the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. You can access all briefs from the series here.

Each brief is available for free and for re-use without permission.
