Emotion Coaching has been found to help children and young people better understand their emotions, as well as regulate, improve and take ownership of their behaviour. Emotion Coached children and young people:
· Achieve more academically in school
· Are more popular
· Have fewer behavioural problems
· Have fewer infectious illnesses
· Are more emotionally stable
· Are more resilient
Emotion Coaching can also help practitioners to be more sensitive to the needs of children and young people, create more consistent responses to behaviour, feel more ‘in control’ during incidents, and promote positive relationships between adults and children.
Delegates will be encouraged between Day 1 and 2 to reflect on their learning and experiences. This will involve keeping a reflective diary to consider how you have used Emotion Coaching ‘in the moment’, what went well and what you have learnt through ‘getting it wrong’, which is an important part of the learning process and EC journey.
Between days 1 and 2, you will also need to watch the half hour video here
At the end of the 2 day course, you will consider how you can further embed Emotion Coaching into your work and personal lives and consider how to “adopt” and “adapt” into your professional practice. “you need to practise to improve practice” (Gilbert, 2018)
Please note, this is now a 2 day course. No need to redo if already done the 1 day course.
