WORDS CREATE WORLDS - Guiding children's challenging behaviours and feelings through emotional coaching


Young children, babies and toddlers encounter big emotions, as a course of natural development and due to the difficult times we currently face. Often, these emotions translate to challenging behaviours and we are left wondering how to respond. How can we help children navigate, articulate, and learn from their emotions? How do we respond beyond 'You’re okay' or 'Use your words' to defuse uncomfortable emotions and challenging behaviours?

This webinar will introduce the art of Emotion Coaching to support children (and ourselves!) in times of stress. The 5 steps of an emotion coaching approach will be introduced, with strategies for including these in daily pedagogy. The purpose of emotions will be discussed and ideas shared for how we can coach children and build their emotional and wellbeing literacy. Join us to learn how our words can create worlds of empathy, regulation and autonomy for children.
