All too often a lack of self-control leads to children, already in difficulties, to make things worse for themselves.
Be it in the community, within families, in the classroom or in the playground, emotional flare-ups and disproportionately aggressive and volatile behaviours result in situations escalating rapidly out of control.
Emotion Coaching is an attachment-based tool that helps children to self-regulate and manage their own emotions by developing emotional self-awareness and nurturing relationships in teams around them.
If, because of emotion coaching, children become more responsive to help, support and guidance through better emotional self-regulation, the impact will be measurable beyond the programme: in this regard, emotion coaching can be perceived by service leaders as a gateway intervention.
“I have really enjoyed hearing about all of the experiences of staff allowing us to get to know more about each other, also being able to consider how this can be put into practice in our own lives along with professional lives. I also am really interested in all the brain development stuff”
“I really enjoy taking the time to reflect and hearing everyone's personal experiences which I think brings the training to life.”
