Emotional Regulation – 6-11yrs


This 6 week workshop details our emotional regulation intervention which aims to raise self-awareness, understanding of emotions and anger/anxiety cycle, physical indicators of rising emotions and develop a range of strategies. 

Improved emotion regulation leads to benefits in all areas of a child’s life. Children who are able to regulate their emotions pay more attention, work harder, and achieve more in school. They are better able to resolve conflicts with their peers and show lower levels of physiological stress.

They are also better behaved — and more caring towards others. These aim to • raise self-awareness • educate about the anxiety/anger cycle • ascertain understanding of emotions (both in oneself and other) • understand the changes in the brain before and during crisis • an understanding of the physical feelings during the cycle • educate around the optimal time to use strategies for calming • develop a range of strategies • understand the consequences of choices
