May 16 @ 09h 00 - 11h 00Free
For adults of children 6 years and younger.
Parents have a tremendous opportunity to influence their children’s emotional development. Specifically, parents can “coach” their child to become aware of their emotions and associated needs, as well as to regulate their upset feelings more easily. This workshop will cover a brief introduction to emotion and emotional development, the problem with emotional avoidance, and the 5-step model of emotion coaching. Workshop participants will also be provided with specific skills in order to manage the expression of different emotions in children, including extreme emotional experiences.
