Is your child struggling with anxiety, defiance, tantrums, meltdowns, and overall emotion dysregulation? Does the world feel overwhelming right now? Too many changes, too quickly? Struggling to find the right words or the tools to help your child navigate big feelings?
A child’s emotions can be draining for everyone involved. This course will empower parents and caregivers to proactively and lovingly help children during these challenging moments.
Emotional regulation is a key component that supports our overall health and well-being. As our capacity to regulate our emotions increases, so does our ability to engage positively with all parts of our world. This had the impact of enhancing our ability to communicate our needs, limits, and boundaries in a clear and effective way. Strengthening a child’s emotional vocabulary and supporting them to develop emotional regulation skills is an important part of ensuring that our children are growing with the skills and knowledge they will need for healthy relationships at all stages of life.
This course aims to provide practical information for caregivers and professionals about the importance of self-regulation in both ourselves and the children we are supporting, as well as to focus on strategies that we can use with the children we are supporting to enhance their development of self-regulation skills. The workshop also includes a section with tools to empower you to help your child navigate the current uncertainty and fear spreading across the globe.
- Introduction to the neurobiological and developmental of emotions in children
- Exploration of triggers which fuel emotional dysregulation
