Learning to manage feelings in an age-appropriate and socially acceptable way is a crucial developmental task for all children. Children who are well-regulated are more cooperative and socially successful and enjoy better attention and learning outcomes. Self-regulation always develops in the context of secure relationships with caring adults.
With the use of case studies and videos, this practical one-day seminar demonstrates how educators can use Emotion Coaching to help children calm when upset and to learn self-regulation, empathy and problem solving skills. It will also detail programming options to support children’s awareness of feelings and strategies for managing them. The vital role that a self-regulation zone can play in supporting older children to calm down when they are feeling angry, sad or overwhelmed will also be examined.
This event is suitable for all early childhood professionals
