CC 0306 Emotion Coaching for Caregivers: Synthesizing Connection and Discipline

Parents, caregivers, and educators are able to play a significant role in teaching children how to regulate their emotions within their daily interactions.  The ability to regulate emotion is highly correlated to positive behavioural outcomes and success in children as they develop.  Emotion coaching is a technique that combines the power of emotional connection with the necessity of effective limit setting and discipline.  Participants will learn the history and framework of emotion coaching and how to use this technique to respond to problematic behaviours and emotional dysregulation in children and youth.
