Emotion Regulation and Social Skills Workshop
(7-12 year olds)
Displays of behaviour that seem out of character or extreme very often stem from intense feelings or emotions. We might not even be aware of these emotions, and if asked, we might feel unable to answer the question, “What are you feeling?” But if we do not understand our emotions, we will find it difficult to regulate them.
In this program, we will help children to unpack their emotional experiences by together answering some useful questions such as:
- What are emotions?
- How do emotions manifest in our body?
- What triggers our emotional responses?
- How do emotions and thoughts interact?
- How do we regulate our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours?
