Promoting Self-Regulation in Adolescents and Young Adults: A Practice Brief
Self-regulation refers to one’s ability to manage emotions and impulses. Adolescence and young adulthood are times of both risk and opportunity with regard to self-regulation. This 6-page Practice Brief (from the Administration for Children and Families) describes the importance of self-regulation for adolescents and young adults and provides guidelines for supporting self-regulation development for 14-25-year-olds. Extra bonus—the Practice Brief pairs well with a 3-page companion resource called Seven Key Principles of Self-Regulation.
