Join us for this in-person opportunity with Mindspring Mental Health Alliance to learn to support emotional regulation in youth. We'll focus on 3 primary areas. - Providing a Foundation to Manage Big Emotions: Children aren’t born knowing how to manage emotions or express feelings in appropriate ways. And when children don’t understand their emotions, challenging behavior can arise. We will help you find ways to create healthy connections with kids, understand how to calm the child’s nervous system, and teach you skills to practice. - Managing Emotional Storms: Despite our best efforts to prepare children to manage big storms of emotions, they will struggle sometimes. Managing emotional storms takes emotional & physical maturity, and practice. We’ll look at the warning signs that indicate an emotional storm is on the horizon, interventions to support children when they feel an emotional storm brewing, and how to reduce the impact of the storm. - Being a Calming Presence & Making Amends: How can we best support children when they get stuck in a storm of big emotions? Learn how to be a calming presence in a child’s moment of distress and how to repair damage the storm has done.
