Access this training to discover how to use Emotion Coaching to support positive relationships and behaviour in your classroom and school.
Emotion Coaching is an evidence-informed strategy (based upon the work of the psychologist John Gottman) aimed at helping children and young people to understand the different emotions they experience, why they occur and how to handle them (Gottman 1997). In the simplest terms, you can coach children about emotions by comforting them, listening and understanding their thoughts and feelings, and helping them understand themselves. As you do this, children will feel loved, supported, respected, and valued. With this emotionally supportive foundation, you will be much more successful at setting limits and problem solving.
Emotion coaching helps:
- Children to regulate, improve and take ownership of their behaviour
- Children to calm down and better understand their emotions
- Practitioners to be more sensitive to children’s needs
- Create more consistent responses to children’s behaviour
- Practitioners to feel more ‘in control’ during incidents
- Promotes positive relationships between children and adults (Rose and Gilbert 2017).
