Emotion Coaching


In this short workshop, you will learn how to use moments of high-emotion, and their resulting behaviours, to teach children about appropriate responses to their emotions, through better understanding of their neurological systems. Emotion Coaching is about “helping children and young people to understand the different emotions they experience, why they occur and how to handle them” (Gottman 1996). Emotion coaching supports emotional regulation, in children and young people, through empathetic relationships, to manage behavioural outbursts and regain a sense of calm. You will learn about the brain’s part in emotions, and how, when and where to use Emotion Coaching.
